The Boy and the World

Ale Abreu

BOY AND THE WORLD follows a young boy who lives in the quiet countryside with his parents on their family farm. They have a close-knit little family, and things are fine until the boy sees big machines pop up on the horizon, spewing out black smoke. Eventually the boy’s father heads to the city in search of work, and the boy, unwilling to see his family separated, follows him. The boy ends up on a journey to find his father that expands his world from his rural hometown to the big, sometimes-scary city with its parades and crowded living environments, slums, and factories.
