During spring break, he makes a harrowing journey back to the Navajo homeland and then his goldfish died. As he buries it, his insensitive, buffoon of a brother-father harasses Cleo for his "urban" proclivities. Thus we learn of Pete's resentment of his younger brother-son. The two bicker until sent skulking inside by their scolding elderly mother. As Cleo quickly realizes his brother has retrogressed to a childish and fat time of life, doing hardly more than watching daytime television, eating, and presumably pooping. The mother, after providing food, sends her children to clean a Hogan (Navajo ancestral home) which brims of their family's trash. Cleo thinks there is still value in many useless items and graces the audience with a song. The two later play a friendly game of Navajo code talkers, where Pete teaches Cleo that he is in fact red on the outside but white on the inside (apple). After stealing food from their mother and carrying books into neighboring hills for no reason, the two feud. Pete is incensed by his brother's expressed passion for learning, because he chose not to learn math. This caused Pete to yell that at one point he had to be a father figure for Cleo because Cleo was very weak as a boy. There is a flashback of the playing rodeo as wee boys and then the credits roll.
