About this submission

While recovering from the grief of a miscarriage and a dying farm,
Mabel and Abraham are visited by a strange traveler who offers them a
chance to wager true love for each of their deepest desires. Their deal
leads to the magical growth of a suspiciously bountiful baby from within
their own farm, and a torrent of needed rain. Following these miracles, the
two are suddenly plunged into a slow-growing nightmare of their own
creation, eventually finding themselves forced to face the visceral consequences of the question: how far will one go to get what they desire?
