It begins as a simple dream. An idealistic environmental scientist moves his wife and young son off the grid, to a stretch of river-bottom farmland in the Mississippi hills, hoping to position himself at the forefront of a revolution in agriculture.
Within a year he is ruined.
When a corpse appears on his family's property, the farmer is convinced he's being set up. And so begins a journey into a maze of misperceptions and personal obsessions as the farmer, his now-estranged wife, a predatory deputy, and a backwoods wanderer all try to uphold a personal sense of honour.
By turns hilarious and darkly disturbing, Soil traces one man's apocalypse to its epic showdown in the Mississippi mudflats.
