A touching story of an aging man, Milton Marshal, who returns to the South Florida town of his youth in search of redemption for a long ago tragedy. In the summer of 1961, Milton and three friends, pre-teens and inseparable all, set out to capture a one-eyed alligator they find in a canal and name, Moses. The foursome consists of timid Milton, adventurous Davy, de facto leader Mark, and insecure Floyd.
As the boys' plans to catch the big gator come together, they cross paths with Brad and Randy, two local hoods looking to make a fast buck. Mutual suspicion of what each group is up to at the canal turns to confrontation when the trouble-makers show up bent on poaching the reptile for its hide, leading to an unexpected tragedy that leaves Milton with a life-long struggle with guilt. Does Milton have the inner strength to face his demons and will he find deliverance from his torment?
