In the winter of 1968, a young woman named Harriet disappears outside of Denver. Soon after, her father dies mysteriously. The family's three remaining sons - Wayne, Roy, and Conrad - grow increasingly distant as the specters of murder, family, and suspicion loom.

As the brothers grow older, they learn that loss comes in many forms - in absence and silence, and in death. Decades later, Wayne's only child confronts the brothers, uncovering long-buried resentments that have plagued the family for generations. We encounter Conrad, an ex-army alcoholic, the now sober but wheelchair-bound Roy, and an increasingly distant and reclusive Wayne - delirious with the belief that he can create his own history.
