Summary Ivan is the minister at a remote, rural church. A bit of a Pollyanna, he's volunteered the rectory as a half-way house for recently paroled convicts. His current charges are a Saudi immigrant addicted to robbing gas stations and an alcoholic convicted of sexual assault. His newest "helper" is Adam, a vicious neo-Nazi anxiously biding his time before he can return to hell-raising. Asked to set a goal for his stay, Adam sarcastically answers that he'd like to bake a pie. Ivan cheerfully takes that statement at face value and puts him in charge of the parish's pride and joy: the only apple tree in the vicinity. Grasping the extent of Ivan's crazed, preternatural determination to look on the bright side of everything, Adam's real goal is to shake Ivan out of his rose-colored stupor.
