Faramir, captain of Gondor, son of the Steward, Denethor II, and brother of the late Boromir, is camping with his soldiers in a cave. They're reviewing a map and the placements of their men. It doesn't look hopeful.
When Faramir questions the hobbits, Frodo tells him their real names and that they left from Rivendell with a company of seven.
When he speaks of Boromir, Faramir tells him he is dead. Frodo is taken aback, unaware that he fell.
Then Faramir begins to reminisce. First we see him in a dream, watching the dead Boromir float by in his funeral boat.
Then we see Boromir giving a speech at the retaking of Osgiliath. He greets his brother warmly as they celebrate their victory… until their father shows up.
Denethor II is very pleased with the achievements of his eldest born, but looks on Faramir with disdain.
Boromir tries to speak up for his brother but Denethor wants none of it. Instead, he speaks of a council in Rivendell.
He suspects this council will be about the One Ring and whishes Boromir to claim it for Gondor.
Boromir doesn't want to go but Denethor definitely doesn't want to send Faramir, so he has no choice.
