Brother Edgar (Bob Hoskins) is a socks salesman who poses as a priest to avoid paying bribes to the local sheriff, Becker (Randy Travis).  He and his apprentice, Morales Pittman (Antonio Banderas) have taken in the White River Kid (Wes Bentley), not initially knowing that he is a wanted killer.


Edgar begins to take his facade as a clergyman a bit too seriously, and attempts to reform the Kid and his girlfriend.  Adding to this mix of craziness is the town's blind prostitute, a woman cured of cancer who prays to Elvis, and the Kid's girlfriend.
