Heath, a boy of twelve, finds himself tossed onto a country road with not a soul around.
Plagued by several encounters with a seemingly inexorable coyote, Heath plunges into several states of insanity.

Though still, in the back of his mind, there is peace. Sometimes it overcomes him and he is sorry for his sins… yet he does more when the insanity returns.

But when he learns the truth, he is not satisfied.
Goodbye, sanity.
