The story of a father and son is told from the perspective of the son in an intimate, lyrical style. The father, a widower, lives with his son in a small town in the Netherlands. The son is a painter and is struggling to find his own voice. The father is a gentle and supportive figure, but the son is often reluctant to express his feelings. The father encourages his son to find his voice and to be true to himself. The son begins to open up and share his thoughts and feelings, and the father begins to understand him better. The father teaches his son to find joy in the small things in life, and they eventually become closer than ever.; 8vo.
