Tells the story of a young man's struggle to keep his world from changing. Placed in the rural setting of the mid 1950's, it revolves around William Jamison and his colorful old Grampa Jack. Since Will was born they have shared the same bed and often the same dreams. William is a boy of great imagination who stumbles between fantasy and reality and who, with the gentle guidance of Grampa Jack, discovers they can be one in the same. The family farm, on a rolling piece of spacious countryside is William's favorite spot on the face of the earth. He is devastated to learn of this family's decision to move to the city, far away from his friends and the love of his life, his cousin Kate. He revolts at the threat of being uprooted and desperately fights to hold on to the only life he has known .... childhood. Written by Anonymous
