Hyder Simpson and his wife Rachel have been married for 50 years. They are simple country folk who live in a small cabin in the mountains. One evening after dinner, Hyder and his dog go off raccoon hunting. When the dog jumps into a fast moving stream Hyder jumps him to rescue him. He wakes up the next morning having apparently spent the night in the woods. When he gets home however, he and his dog are invisible to everyone around them, Rachel is dressed in black and it's apparent that he's died. Thus begins Hyder's journey, one that presents him with choices. Written by
An old man and a hound dog named Rip, off for an evening's pleasure in quest of raccoon. Usually, these evenings end with one tired old man, one battle-scarred hound dog, and one or more extremely dead raccoons, but as you may suspect, that will not be the case tonight. These hunters won't be coming home from the hill. They're headed for the backwoods - of The Twilight Zone.

Arthur Hunnicut portrays Hyder Simpson, who has been married to his wife Rachel(played by Janette Nolan) for 50 years in their rural cabin home in the mountains. One day, Hyder takes his beloved Dog Rip on a Raccoon hunt that goes wrong when both of them seem to drown in a fast-moving river, though appear later unharmed, but compelled to travel down a long road where he comes across two gatekeepers, both of whom welcome him in, but the first won't allow Rip in, so Hyder passes on that one, only to be confronted by quite a revelation when he approaches the second... Heartfelt episode is a valentine for animal lovers, and is wonderfully acted and made as well. Cats however should also get a friendly mention as not being fooled either!
