We now find Nicholson taking a quiet (and retrospective) walk through a field of grain. Seeing his childhood home has left his demeanor defeated and energy depleted. Walking through the wheat fields and gently gliding his hands over the tops, Nicholson contemplates on how life would be now if his dad were still here. There's a level of joy in manufacturing falsities and letting them overtake him.
He imagines running through the fields as a young boy as his family chases him. The smiles are real; the happiness is palpable. He can picture the moments with such precision that for just a blink of an eye he transplants himself there.
But the true reality comes back with Nicholson hiking further through the field. As he summits on a hill he sees a family in the distance.
The family is running through the field together just as Nicholson imagined. Observing this family brings a content smile. He imagines painting this scene and visualizes his brush grazing over the canvas with bright colors signifying the joy of the moment.

The hike continues.
