A surprise visit from the infamous Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow disturbs a thirteen-year-old boy’s routine—and future. A fortune teller’s ominous predictions unsettle two brothers during their first visit to the Cotton Bowl. Whooping cough quarantines a family and reminds them of their precarious history.
