Josh Slotnick is a vegetable farmer. He remembers the night in 2000 that the Hells Angles arrive in Missoula. The same night the North Hills catch fire. Downtown Missoula is overcome with out of town cops in riot gear. The Rainbow Gathering folks are in town as well. Missoula fills with smoke from wildland forest fires.
Some college students move into Karen's neighborhood causing consternation to her. She worries that they will disrupt the neighborhood made up mostly of families. Instead, they introduce themselves, become friends with her kids and "throw disc" with them whenever they can.
