Event Details

Alex Halldorson arrives in the middle of Newt-A-Yazoo-La, the annual festival celebrating the reclusive winged newts of the Yazoo River. He’s there to build relationships between his company (a chemical plant being built along the Yazoo river) and the local community. The relationships he discovers are not the ones he expects. Family lies, broken ties and why won’t those Yazoo…who-zoo–Yazoo winged newts fly?!
