"On June 10th, 1982 Ronald D. Roberts is found dead in his car with a bullet through his heart," according to press notes. "After years of depression and substance abuse wares at his soul, Ronnie's will to stay alive is cut short. Nearly 30 years later Randy, Ronnie's nephew, life traces the same path. Tortured by a closed minded evangelical family, Randy fights to untangle his heart damned by the Biblical law of Leviticus and others who are unwavering to see beyond their own fears."

Randy Roberts Potts will be part of a talkback following the reading.
