Daddy Sherry, the oldest man in the world, has flown the kite of his life for almost one hundred and seventeen years and the foothills town of Shelby is planning a community birthday celebration. Tensions rise as Daddy, who has ?good? days and ?bad? days, decides it?s time to ?call the dog and piss on the fire??that is, to die. He is finally convinced by Keith, his great-great-great grandson that dying during a foothills spring ?Wouldn?t be decent.? His reaction to Shelby?s birthday gift, when it is unveiled on the community hall stage, is explosively surprising. He much prefers the birthday kite which Keith made for him.
