Overview

A touching reflection on coming of age, relived by an ailing father and his son

A son finds his dying father's book manuscript, written long in the past about his childhood life growing up in Great Neck, New York during World War II. The son reads the series of short stories out loud to his father on his death bed to give him comfort in his final days, subtly reminding him that he will soon be reunited with his parents and childhood friends.
