The title is the nickname for a young man (Sean Patrick Flanery) with unique powers and unusual intelligence, who’s been concealed since birth in his grandparents’ cellar in Texas. The plot has something to do with the struggle between the prejudice of a small town and two sympathetic educators (Mary Steenburgen and Jeff Goldblum). Written and directed by Victor Salva, this fantasy drama costars Lance Henriksen as the local sheriff and Brandon Smith as his deputy.
