Synopsis

Based on the acclaimed 1973 Cormac McCarthy novel, director James Franco’s CHILD OF GOD takes place in 1960s Tennessee,  where Lester Ballard is a dispossessed, violent man – one the narrator describes as “a child of God much like yourself perhaps.”  Deprived first of his family and then his home,  Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller, falling deeper into a disturbing life of crime and degradation.
