Story Gilles Vigneault Narrator James Hyndman
Sophie and Emilio spend their days enjoying life’s small discoveries in a tiny seaside village with their best pet friend ‘Sir’ and a mischievous crow. Sophie’s regular visits and gift exchanges with her great-uncle leads to teachings about how value is determined by the intentions of the heart. The wisdom of Old Man Tom’s eloquent quote “It’s all in the nature of things,” sums up this poetic tale of friendship, inevitable change, values, mentorship, old age, overcoming loss, discovery and rites of passage.
