Synopsis: To the general public Baraka Commos is a considerate and polite man working in the deli department of the local supermarket. The locals know he has a side business selling the state’s rarely found and fabled Jackalope meat to assorted restaurants and supermarkets and has made a decent living for himself, enabling him to take care of his fiancé, Genna Adderley.
In the Cheyenne community where they live Baraka and Genna are widely respected people of faith but their truths are less palatable as they run amok taking God’s laws into their own hands. If they see people’s behaviours as inappropriate in “his eyes” they kidnap and castigate those offenders with dire consequences.
Having had their first wedding attempt fail miserably the two become excited upon meeting their prospective wedding planner and her co-working friends. This changes when the wedding day comes as Baraka and Genna are forced to decide that the wedding planners must repent.
