Chris and Richard Trusler grew up with a violent and abusive father. He died alone in the old house where they grew up and the two brothers return home to sort through his possessions and belongings on his death.

The brothers gain a degree of emotional release, remembering a bitter childhood but, at last, starting to lay the past to rest. In a final act of catharsis, the brothers throw out the carpet stained with their dead father's remains, and, along with the rest of his possessions, toss them into the back of a dustcart.
