In storybook fashion, a boy recounts to his little brother the tale of how he retrieved their late father’s stolen property. In a rural former mining town of California, the boy sneaks onto the property of a rough man to reclaim a weapon that rightfully belongs to him and his family. After doing so, the boy escapes on foot, which provokes the aggressive man to hunt him down in his vehicle. This twisted story comes to life in the boy’s intense telling of a dangerous game of cat and mouse that influences the loss of childhood innocence.
