The other is the genius sculptor Gerard Korty, who struggles to create a masterwork that will heal the metaphysical wounds of the age. 

A few highlights include a bloody battle on a New Jersey golf course between Jews and anti-Semites, a theater troupe’s stirring dramatization of the Gilgamesh epic, a debate between Martin Luther and Erasmus, and a chilling villain in the personage of Dr. Adrian Lucido - founder of a new pagan church in Mexico and inventor of a cure worse than any disease...
