Presented with unshakeable faith, Beverly is one of the first people in the region to take into account all the teachings offered by Father Paul, welcoming him with open arms and also defending him when necessary.

Xerife Hassan (Rahul Kohli)
From the moment the first mysteries surface on Crockett Island, the local sheriff has a mission to investigate.
