The Stone Boy synopsis
While hunting one morning, farm boy Arnold (Jason Presson) accidentally shoots and kills his brother after his gun becomes stuck in a fence. When he tells his parents, Joe (Robert Duvall) and Ruth (Glenn Close), what happened, they react with a mixture of shock and anger. Arnold is deeply disturbed, finding himself unable to speak or communicate in any way. His grandfather (Wilford Brimley) is compassionate, but Arnold still runs away from his Montana home to Reno, Nev., looking for escape.
