The twelve-year-old Gordie (Creator/WilWheaton) and his friends Chris Chambers (Creator/RiverPhoenix), Teddy Duchamp (Creator/CoreyFeldman), and Vern Tessio (Creator/JerryOConnell) journey into the woods near their home to look for the body of a boy named Ray Brower, who was struck by a train while picking berries. Through the boys' misadventures and conversations, the viewer learns about each character's personality. Each of the boys, for varying reasons, live in the shadow of their fathers and older brothers. Gordie's talent for storytelling (as illustrated by his improvised short story '[[StoryWithinAStory The Revenge of Lard-Ass Hogan]]') pegs him as the most likely of the four to have a promising future.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Teddy. He often says completely random things, and he has absolutely no regard for his personal safety.
