Frank Harris is an old man with a grown son, Christopher, who has an intellectual disability. They live on the same piece of land, Christopher in a separate asbestos shed so he can be independent. He recalls the difficulties he had raising Chris. Frank is ill with what is likely lung cancer, and he has discovered he doesn't actually own his land. He tries to make arrangements for Chris' care after he dies.
