Johnny recounts a story his father experienced long ago. When his father was young, his family on the verge of starvation. A group of hunters after a successful hunt found their camp. The men gave them caribou meat. If the hunters had not passed by in the area, Johnny`s father`s family would have starved to death. The surprising thing is the hunters killed caribou when they had no ammunition.
