Jacob receives some of the harshest bullying he has ever experienced on his bus ride home from school. Once he arrives home, Jacob takes to his normal routine of feeding the chickens and taking care of his mother. Jacob hears a noise coming from the chicken coop. He investigates and discovers a raccoon attacking the chickens. He goes to tell his mother but she is unsympathetic. She angrily urges Jacob to pick up a gun and do what his daddy taught him, rid the chicken coop of the pest.
