Directed by Mary Harrison, “Revival at Possum Kingdom Community Church” tells of Buddy and Alvo, two down-on-their-luck con men who find themselves broke and stranded in Possum Kingdom, Texas on a hot July day in 1950. Things start to look up when they meet kindly old Ella Faye and her friend Iris who are looking for a preacher to preach a revival at Possum Kingdom’s underpopulated community church. The boys see an opportunity to make it out of town with cash in their pockets, but will the mid-hymn arrival of a misfortunate stranger change Buddy and Alvo’s outlooks for good?
