Walking through the woods one warm September day, Reinhardt and Kristine Ris pass a man who is in a state of agitation.  Unusually in a small town, he does not return Kristine's smile and drives off in a hurry.  As the couple continue on their walk they make a terrible discovery:  lying in a cluster of trees is the lifeless body of a young boy.  It is a moment that will change their lives forever.
