Plains of Moab is a coming of age story about ghosts of our past. When he was six, Josh had his first sexual encounter with the girl next door. All Josh wants to do is escape, but like the ghosts that roam his small town, the memory of his first love penetrates through the fog of drugs and even across distant miles. He hates his parents and hates therapy but finds an outlet in writing a screenplay in the journal his therapist assigns him. Even after he escapes, fate forces him to return to Three Rivers and face his past.
