It tells the story of Caleb (Jack Kilmer - Palo Alto, The Nice Guys, Summer ‘03) who must cover for his autistic brother Russel (Andrew Duff) who is assumed guilty when a neighbor’s horse is found dead.
Caleb is forced to dig the horse’s grave but finds himself digging into his own unanswered questions about his life and the meaning of disability.
