When he tells his parents, Joe and Ruth, what happened, they react with a mixture of shock and anger. Arnold is deeply disturbed, finding himself unable to speak or communicate in any way. His grandfather is compassionate, but Arnold still runs away from his Montana home to Reno, Nev., looking for escape.
