This is a story of growth, in which Tom’s consequence-free childhood games take on more and more weight and gravity. He finds himself, and his friends, in increasingly dangerous situations; and he soon realizes that he must put his concern for others above the concern for himself. While this story is one of youthful adventure, we watch Tom as he begins to grow in maturity and integrity, and are left to imagine what kind of a man he will become.
When we are reminded of the world outside of our own; when we put down our handheld computers and listen to the rattlings in our own heads; we find that we are stronger, braver, and have more in common with those who came before than we ever though possible.
So, turn off your electronic devices, forget the outside world for a spell, and come play in a world that technology has forgotten.
