Storyline

Beginning in 1971 in the small Oklahoma town of Jonah, a drought is plaguing the corn harvest. The children, led by a boy with a distinct birthmark on his face, are secretly part of a bizarre religious group that worships the corn and an entity that makes itself known through the crows living on the land. The night after the Sunday church service, the children murder their parents in their beds.
