Asher and Charlie are two very different brothers. Asher likes fishing and swearing. Charlie likes tea parties and crafts. In the summer of 1987 – the first since their father walked out of their lives – their relationship undergoes a test of almost mythic proportions when Asher’s confusion and anger boils over into a mindless act of cruelty against an eel. The fall-out will determine the men, and brothers, they will become.
