The Dreamer

Set long ago and far away, this green allegory is both adventure and fairy tale. Moro, a rich, heartless landowner holds the village at the foot of the mountain in his power, but it isn't enough. Lark, the mute peasant girl, has known no love since her mother died and can never please her father however hard she works. She finds solace in carving animals from clay and wood, her art frequently destroyed by her bullying brother. Her friend Fedor, the lame goatherd, never understood why his father left and still hopes he will return. When he sings, it's his father's voice he hears. The pair befriend The Dreamer, an old blind man who lives alone on the mountain. He introduces them to the magical world in his crystal story bowl and the myth of the Flower Bird. Their world falls apart when Moro obtains the bowl and - coveting the crystal which lies behind the waterfall - wreaks havoc on the mountain. As greed begins to destroy the life of the village and the weak are first to die, can two children and a blind man find the courage and resources within themselves to stand up and lead the way to a better future?
