All the Little Animals
Bobby (Christian Bale) is a mentally handicapped young man with an affinity for animals. He runs away from home after his stepfather (Daniel Benzali) kills all his pets. While on the road, he meets a peculiar old man who calls himself Mr. Summers (John Hurt), who buries the dead animals he finds on the side of the road. The two outcasts form a bond over their love of animals, but Bobby knows that eventually he'll have to return home and confront his stepfather.
