A father tells his son a story in an effort to connect and convey something very, very important. He chooses as his vehicle the great epic of Beowulf – fierce warrior and slayer of dragons. As the boy is sucked in, bit by bit, his father reveals the deeper life lesson he wants his son to understand. In turn endearing, hilarious, and poignant, master physical storyteller Bryan Burroughs draws you into a world full of vibrant characters. A wonderfully loving portrayal of a father son relationship, ultimately it’s a story about being human.
