We pick up the story with Terrance chasing new leads, while he plays back the tale of a previously unknown Sugar Maple owner, Quentin Gladstone—an unhoused young man who found community and purpose with a welcoming church and its charismatic minister, Solomon Randolph. But when Randolph puts the untrained Quentin in charge of the gospel music for his grand revival, Sugar Maple unleashes a frightening higher power that forces Quentin away from his found family, in terror and shame.
