Abstract
Seven poems from the Robert Louis Stevenson classic are woven into a day in the life of a small town boy. Through visuals, sound effects, music, and a sensitive reading of the poems, the film creates a background for reading and poetry. While the setting is contemporary, the film has been carefully photographed to achieve a timeless quality.
