    In the fall of 1978, on the 640-acre family deer-hunting ranch on Goat Mountain in Northern California, a couple hours north of Clear Lake on a four-wheel-drive road, an eleven-year-old boy goes hunting with three men: his father, grandfather, and a friend of his father's. Goat Mountain is a dry place of live oak and buck brush and poison oak with occasional relief from stands of ponderosa pine, white pine, and sugar pine, and even a swampy bear wallow. This is the place where all the family's memories and stories and history are held.

    Automne 1978, nord de la Californie. C'est l'ouverture de la chasse sur les deux cent cinquante hectares du ranch de Goat Mountain où un garçon de onze ans, son père, son grand-père et un ami de la famille se retrouvent comme chaque année pour chasser. À leur arrivée, les quatre hommes aperçoivent au loin un braconnier qu'ils observent à travers la lunette de leur fusil. Le père invite son fils à tenir l'arme et à venir regarder. Et l'irréparable se produit. De cet instant figé découle l'éternité : les instincts primitifs se mesurent aux conséquences à vie, les croyances universelles se heurtent aux résonances des tragédies.
