Plot Synopsis

Based on the novel by Ethan Canin. A successful young doctor recalls the circumstances that led to the estrangement from his troubled, older brother fifteen years earlier in a small river town in Wisconsin. After their father abandons the family and their mother takes refuge in religion, the older son begins to become a delinquent, while the younger boy blames his best friend for his revered brother's arson fires. Torn between guilt and loyalty, the conflicted youth must make personal choices which will drive him and his brother apart for years.
