Flannery O'Connor is a writer with a keen sense of observation for the subtle cruelty that comes from fear of the unknown.
The case in point is "The Displaced Person." Set in Georgia during the late 1940's, the "displaced person" is a Polish refugee (Mr. Guizac) who's relocated by a priest (John Houseman) to work on Mrs. McIntyre's (Irene Worth) farm. Quickly the industrious and clever Mr. Guizac becomes a threat to the other farmworkers. Soon all are plotting Mr. Guizac's downfall until fate unexpectedly takes a hand in deciding this outsider's destiny & and ultimately everyone's tragedy.
Two-time Oscar-winning screenwriter Horton Foote crafts the screenplay in this powerful and shocking story.
