Flannery O'Connor is a writer with a keen sense of observation for the subtle cruelty that comes from fear of the unknown, and a case in point is her story "The Displaced Person". Set in Georgia during the late 1940s, the displaced person is Mr. Guizac (Noam Yerushalmi), a Polish refugee who's relocated by a priest (John Houseman) to work on Mrs. McIntyre's (Irene Worth's) farm. Quickly the industrious and clever Mr. Guizac becomes a threat to the other farm workers. Soon all are plotting Mr. Guizac's downfall until fate unexpectedly takes a hand in deciding this outsider's destiny - and ultimately everyone's tragedy. Oscar-winning screenwriter Horton Foote crafts the screenplay in this powerful and shocking story
