Rural Quebec in the fifties. A battered child, Maurice, has taken refuge in a fantasy world. Alone on the farm one afternoon, he invites his pet goose, Teeka, into the house where his bedroom and the bathroom become the scene of some of Tarzan's most terrifying adventures. His parents unexpected return forces Maurice to commit a desperate and cruel act of violence.
