One Fourth of July, in rural Alabama, as Gloria prepares to celebrate Grandpa's 100th birthday, she meets Hank, a fireworks salesman - the Cracker Man. Charming and dangerous, part snake oil salesman, rainmaker and evangelist, Hank carries with him the tools of transformation. On this day, Gloria's life will be forever changed as the earthly ties that have bound her explode like a cherry bomb in a summer sky.

An original southern drama about family ties, fireworks and romantic possibilities, THE CRACKER MAN was produced, written and edited by Bruce Kuerten and John DiJulio.
