Updated: Feb 28, 2019


A sick boy unwittingly sells his soul to the Devil, in exchange for the Devil curing him of his illness.



From the screenwriter...


Georgia, 1957, and Joseph Arden, 9, is stricken with suspected polio. He'll need to be hospitalized, but before he can get there, a mysterious little girl visits him during the night. The girl claims to be able to "pluck out the sickness", but only if Joseph promises that the two of them will be friends for ever and ever.
