The Last Soldier
It's 1920s Texas and the carnival is in town. Two brothers are drawn to the newest exhibit, the Last Soldier of WWI, but the gruesome soldier has a message for them.
Nothing much happens in Joe and Wade's dusty town.
There's not much excitement in Joe and his brother's lives - just grinding poverty and the occasional run-in with the neighbours.
The only highlight is the arrival of the carnival, with its mermaid, wolfman and baby dragon.
This year, there's a new attraction - the Last Soldier of World War One. What message does he have for the boys...?
