Henry finds both love and pain in this grim setting. He tends the cows and the fearsome bull who turns out to be very lonely and sweet. Henry names the bull Noah and considers him his best and only friend. Contrasting hope is provided when an innocent new boy on the farm, Ollie, shows nothing but compassion. All relationships become strained with his unsettling addition to the family, and there is an inevitable but unpredictable crescendo before a tender conclusion.
