Terry drives from the edge of town to a river’s edge for an evening’s fishing. His return to these empty fields where he played as a child triggers a flood of memories. He re-experiences nights around a campfire, spent listening to ghost stories of a violent past. As separate shapes will blend and run together in thickening twilight, so too do the present and the past, reality and fiction become confused in Terry’s imagination and his fears lead him to make a grave mistake.
