As the boy grows older so does his rate of consumption. The day comes when he brings their home to the ground, they have nothing left. Later, the father awakens in panic, his son is gone. He finally finds his son; eyes closed and furnace fire out. The wind begins to slowly turn a pinwheel the child holds. The father realizes something and begins working on the child’s furnace.
