Returning to the scene of his turbulent childhood, a dying man comes to grips with a chilling truth—that his father was never capable of giving him affection. As he looks back on one particular summer, he realizes that much of his will to survive came from the unconditional love and support offered by his grandfather, and it is that heritage, rather than the brutality of his father's lessons, that he will pass on to his own children.
