Beyond the clocktower
One boy’s longing for adventure leads him BEYOND the BIG city and into the unknown.
What happens next?
Join him and find out!
Deep in the heart of the BIG city, there lives a boy. Concerned that he will never leave the city, the boy asks his friend, the Clocktower, what lies outside the city limits. But the Clocktower has never left either, and instead tells the boy to return at midnight and follow the moon to where the sky touches the sea. And as the clock strikes midnight, the boy follows the moon, alone, through the empty city streets.
The boy is guided by the moon, the sun, the cloud, the forest, the fire, and the river on an epic adventure. Along the journey, he learns about life, love, happiness, sadness, and bravery. He learns about the Earth and himself, emerging with a new understanding of interconnectedness and a new appreciation for ‘home’.
