An aspiring reporter meets with William, the reticent brother, decades later and hears the accused’s side of the story. He’s adamant that he didn’t do it, so much so that he insists upon telling his life story from the very beginning. He covers the moment he and his brother learned what losing was, the high school championships they shared, their falling out, and the events of that night.
Along the way, William mentions the miracles that Sumthin performed through sheer force of emotion: causing lightning to strike, forcing the sun to go into hiding. He also highlights the town, Onion City, and the smell that gave it its name.
The citizens of Onion City desperately needed William and his brother to be successful so that they could be known for something other than their stench.
If William did it, it was because of them.
But William might not have done it, and there might not have actually been any miracles. The reporter tries to investigate only to find that the harder he looks the more uncertain everything becomes.
