The story is told as a flashback by Gene Forrester who revisits Devon School in New Hampshire fifteen years after he was a student there. His best friend was Phineas, called Finny, a natural athlete and idealist, but Gene envied Finny so much that he contrived to make Phineas fall, crippling him. Guilt caused Gene to confess what he had done to Finny but the results were not what Gene expected.
