Released from prison after 22 years for the murder of a teenager, lonesome ex-con Manual Jordan (Billy Bob Thornton) searches for atonement. Almost by accident—or fate—he is drawn into the life of an inner city community center run by enigmatic pastor Miles Evans (Morgan Freeman). Manual seeks to reconcile his troubled conscience as he pursues a tenuous relationship with Adele (Holly Hunter), the older sister of the boy he killed. When Adele's troubled teenage son becomes embroiled in his own cycle of violence, Manual sees what might be one last opportunity for true redemption. Kirsten Dunst co-stars. Official Web Site
