TUTV Table Read: The Pillow in the Casket

Newlywed Sally Crawford returns to town to help her mother carry out a witchdoctor’s instructions regarding the burial of her father’s heart. They dig up a rusty metal box containing a decomposed human heart and a skeletal finger wearing a wedding ring, belonging to Sally’s dad and Mrs. Crawford’s husband. Mrs. Crawford then takes a tuff of coyote fur and places it in the box before placing the box back into the dirt in order for it to “marinate until it’s time.” Being back in her hometown brings back memories of her father and forces Sally to confront her mother about his death and her final wishes.
