We'd all listened to the Ray Brower story . . . he was a kid our age
The small town of Castle Rock is tuning in to the news of a young boy who has gone missing from a nearby town.
Gordie Lachance and his three friends set off along the railway tracks on a quest, determined to become famous by officially finding the boy's body.
But their journey becomes a rite of passage, and as they cross the railway trestle and the tracks begin to hum, the boys encounter an intimation of their own mortality.
