A lonely boy becomes perilously lost in fantasy, as his parents spar over raising him, then debate separating. In a mountain cabin for the summer, the mother and son battle boredom, while the father pounds out magazine articles in his room. When the father's too busy to take his son hunting, the boy (Tommy Nolan of "Buckskin", later a magazine writer) sneaks out on his own with a loaded rifle, pursuing the villain of his fantasies - Black Bart. Back in the cabin, the mother reveals that the son was booted from summer camp, for shooting an apple off another camper's head.
