The Tides of Mississippi




The Tides of Mississippi tells of an American family devastated by the accidental death of the seventeen-year-old daughter.  The father, Rick, and son, Andrew, migrate from Chicago to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to escape the ghosts, where Rick falls in love with Andrew’s teacher. The sixteen-year-old Andrew must deal with the loss of his sister, a dramatic change in his culture, as well as a psychiatric issue.  When the mother, Mallory, comes down to try to remake the family, she reveals a dark secret about Rick that throws Andrew into a crisis.  Rick must decide whether to give up his new love and life for Andrew’s sake or risk the loss of son and livelihood.
