Gina's mother has left the family. Jamie's too. And now their fathers are acting, well, weird. In Cleveland, Gina's dad leaves home, each morning way too early for work. Deep in the woods -- is it near, is it far? -- Jamie's Da must hunt such a distance from their cottage that his children never see him in daylight.Hurt by what they are losing and afraid of what they might find, Gina and Jamie set out to follow their fathers -- she down I-77, he down a path where Da's tracks soon give way to a bear's. They tell their stories by turns, unaware of each other till those stories turn them face-to-face. What happens then is astonishing, beautiful -- out of this world.Or is it?
