Description

On a dark winter's night, a ragged beggar dreams of a warm hearth and a delicious meal --- and sets out to find just that. In this retelling of the classic folk tale “Stone Soup,” a stranger teaches the poor villagers what can be accomplished with a few buttons and a little cooperation.
