It's the happiest time of the year in a small town in the USA--Ripon, California. Its annual Almond Blossom Festival offers a carnival, a parade, bake sales, farm shows, spaghetti feeds, and fashion shows among many other festivities.
However, tragedy is around the corner. Life in Ripon will be impacted forever, and the lives of several citizens teeter between life and death.
Forced to face the hypocrisy that is evident in their very lives, will they be able to recognize the error of their ways and resolve to reach out to the only one who can save them?
As the FBI, the police, and the town search for answers and the one responsible, only wise old Christeson seems to have the answers.
