Four boys find a half devoured body, and a practical joke leads to one boy being injured. That night, he disappears into the woods.
Butch is leading his friends to a hangout spot called the Drop when the four of them come across a bloody trail leading into the woods. They find a half devoured man, struggling through the undergrowth, apparently rotting away with some disease. Butch jokingly pushes one of the boys toward the rotting person, and is dismayed when his friend seemingly gets infected by a scratch from the man. They decide to leave him there while they go to get help. However, when they return, they find that the boy and the body are mysteriously missing. Will Butch allow the other two to cover up his tragic mistake, or will he put an end to the secret right there in the woods?
