This is a story about a father and son who never said they love each other. Sam is 14 and is facing the prospect of living alone with an uncommunicative father as his mother has just passed away. On the day of the funeral he runs away pursued by his best friend Morgan who helps Sam wrestle with truth, trust and the courage to face the future. A down to earth experience that will entertain and inspire your children.
