Waking in an emergency clinic, wounded and beaten, a youngster battles to sort out the occasions of an alarming end of the week. In the midst of blazes of unwinding with companions, the picture of an exceptional starts to arise – crawling nearer and nearer. Some place inside his recollections and the frenzy lies the way in to the executioner’s personality, which, once found, might be more awful than the actual killings. Set in provincial southern Louisiana Jake’s Road is a story of family and how one second can tear friends and family separated or tie them for eternity. With enough exciting bends in the road to keep watchers speculating until the end, we find what drives a man to kill all that he loves and battle for all that he has.
