An adaptation by Victor Nunez of a short story by Flannery O’Connor. When two scrappy boys show up at Mrs. Cope's farm one day, she doesn't quite know what to do with them. When they start causing trouble, she can't seem to get rid of them. They are only boys, how much damage can they do? When Mrs. Cope finally tells the boys they must absolutely leave, they hide for a couple of days and then in a fit of anger set fire to her woods — at the height of the dry season.
