Mohawk, New York, is one of those small towns that lie almost entirely on the wrong side of the tracks.
Its citizens, too, have fallen on hard times. Dallas Younger, a star athlete in high school, now drifts from tavern to poker game, losing money.
His ex-wife, Anne, is stuck in a losing battle with her mother over the care of her sick father. And their son, Randall, is deliberately neglecting his schoolwork - because in a place like Mohawk it doesn't pay to be smart.
Mohawk chronicles over a dozen lives in a decaying leather town in upstate New York.
It is a picture of life which is true for the whole world, and once viewed, will never be forgotten.
