Against the backdrop of the Minnesota sand mining boom, an energy scavenger and his sister arrive at the river headwaters just east of Jordan. They soon learn they are not alone. A strange man roams the woods at night. He claims to carry the power of God. The Watchers explores the nature of religious belief and steps into the dangerous crossroads of human divinity by questioning whether we should even want that belief to be true.
