What do they have in common? A quest for love
If love's a fish, she must be a pink salmon, swimmin' up a cold water creek—troubled, tryin' somethin' mighty to find her intended.
Before the ORPHAN DREAMER was born, Austin's journey for love had begun.
It's 1967; Austin is a simple American man—hardworking, loving, and faithful. Hands calloused, he works a cutlass in sugar cane fields in Belle Glade Florida. Mind elsewhere, he's lost in a dream world as he desires to discover his life's purpose and find his pink salmon swimmin' up a cold water creek, troubled, tryin' somethin' mighty to find her intended—a metaphor that Austin equates with love.
Unfortunately, a train-wrecked military career and a fatal mistake complicate his quest for love until he stumbles upon the message of a mysterious carpenter.
Austin's world is about to make a 180 degree U-turn.
