Ezekiel Moss is described as a depression-era ghost story about a young, imaginative boy living in a small town who befriends a mysterious drifter who may or may not have the supernatural ability to communicate with the dead. It was originally intended to be directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman prior to his tragic passing in 2014.
