Eric and Tommy are a pair of young brothers. Eric is 14 years-old and Tommy is only 9 years-old. It's an hot, lazy summer and they reside in a rural, woodsy part of New Jersey. They're new transplants to the area. Together, they experience a tragedy in the community. Ian, one of Tommy's friends, is spotted dead by the river. Ian was a rambunctious child with a suspicious father. This misfortune forces the boys to view life in a different way. They begin pondering death, evolving relationships and even the uncertainty of nature. Eric is an athletic teen who has a sullen temperament. Younger Tommy, on the other hand, has a much more delicate and introspective persona. Eric simultaneously oppresses and looks after his sibling.
