The Song of Eddie tells the story of a group of disparate people whose fates become entwined with a charismatic messiah figure. In a stark, deserted place, the cult of Eddie gathers. Promising to bear all burdens and to fulfill all desires, Eddie predicts that a great storm will engulf and destroy the world, and gives his followers garments that he says will protect them from the ensuing slaughter. Jenny, one of Eddie’s followers, is torn between her belief in Eddie and her love for Josh, a nonbeliever who sees Eddie for the charlatan that he is. An inevitable battle erupts between Josh, the voice of reason, and Eddie, whose ability to weave truth, fear, and desire into a powerful tool of seduction bears an unsettling resemblance to the cult leaders and demagogues who have become all too familiar in the contemporary world.
