Description
A chance encounter between two childhood friends, including one who escaped an abusive father, reveals how their fortunes have reversed.
"[A] tale of two men whose accidental meeting one morning recalls their boyhood thirty-five years ago. Back then, Tommy was separated from his sisters after he stood up to their abusive father. Jim was by Tommy's side through it all. But one winter night, a chance event on a frozen lake forever changes the balance of their friendship.
