    Vernon God Little is a fifteen-year-old-boy living in a small town in the U.S. state of Texas. When his friend Jesus Navarro commits suicide after killing sixteen bullying schoolmates, suspicion falls on Vernon, who becomes something of a scapegoat in his hometown of Martirio. Fearing the death penalty, he goes on the run to Mexico.
