"Dawn, I promise, you'll never forget this weekend."
– Sam to his daughter Dawn
Sam Finch (ˈsæm ˈfɪntʃ) was the third child and one of the first two sons of Edie and Sven. He married Kay Finch and had three children: Dawn, Gus, and Gregory. Following Gregory's death, he got divorced and remarried.
Sam was a very adventurous and pragmatic person, as evidenced by his enlistment into the army as well as the hunting trip he takes with Dawn.
Sam's story is told from the perspective of the camera brought on his hunting trip with Dawn. Each scene progresses until a particular sight is photographed. The first scene is Sam excitedly telling Dawn about the fun they will have on the trip; Dawn is visibly unenthusiastic. The next scene is Dawn standing in front of the park's sign, reading her book. This is followed by Dawn taking a humorous picture of her father urinating on a tree. After that, Sam recounts his last trip to the park, and Dawn spots a buck in the distance, photographing it. Sam then pressures Dawn into shooting it, taking a picture of her preparing the shot and then taking another picture at the moment the buck is shot. The final scene is where Sam sets the timer on the camera, jogs up to the ridge where Dawn and the buck are, and is killed when the buck knocks him over the edge.
After he convinces Dawn to shoot the buck, Sam sets up a dramatic shot of its body atop a ridge, with Dawn crying over it. He sets the camera's timer before running over to join Dawn. Stepping over the buck's body, he grabs its antlers and holds its head to face the camera. As Dawn tries to warn him that the buck isn't truly dead, it knocks Sam back, and he falls off the edge to his death.
