After graduating from high school, Degan Brandt escapes small-town life, never to be heard from again, only to be called back thirty-five years later, by the spirit of his former, recently deceased, girlfriend, Hattie. He learns she was pregnant when he left, quickly calculating that he has a son (Hiawatha) and grandchildren he has never met.
The word, “Canajoharie” means, “The pot that washes itself” or the “boiling pot”. In the end, Degan, Hattie, and Hiawatha cleanse themselves from their past.
