Summer and Smoke takes place in the year before the start of WWI in Glorious Hill, Mississippi, a small southern town. It is the story of Alma, an extremely proper minister’s daughter, and John, a dissolute young doctor she has known since childhood. It focuses on their struggle to understand their own human desires, to find the balance between body and soul, in the context of rigid social expectations.
