Written by Tracy Ryan
Cody is an intelligent but alienated high school drop out who doesn’t know where she fits.
Kylie is a pretty young wife whose great, though intermittent, sex life with her husband is threatened by her burgeoning religious beliefs.
And Carol is the lady in pink velour who becomes more and more distant from a family that doesn’t seem to care.
Into their lives comes the Reverend William King whose benign smile hides a controlling, paternalistic nature. Stronger than a father figure, closer than a disappointing husband, the Reverend William King looms disturbingly large in each of their lives.
