This is a synopsis of The Old Man & The Little Leaf:
A recently widowed Mr T, an Indian man of 75 years living in Paterson, NJ. Grief and loneliness rack him everyday as he moves about his day in the large, empty house. The dark and gloom threaten to overwhelm and take over his life. And then he goes for a walk by the river. Life hits his darkness full force with it’s energy, vitality, unapologetic joyfulness. There he meets Little Leaf, who will soon become his best friend ever. Together they go on rollicking magical adventures.
Every day is magical now with adventures into the Milky Way on a light beam, rides atop friendly eagles, visits to an underwater cave where Toxy the fox lives amidst unbelievable splendor and wealth, an unexpected plunge off the earth into the Great Pipeline below from where no one has ever returned. Many more thrills await T and his unusual friends as they move through their lives.
But there is also fear, humiliation and anxiety in store for T; his neighbor, the 12 year old bully Sammy, and his despicable talking parrot have targeted T with their venomous and foul energies.
This is a story of joy, and of the magic of life if one could only see. It is a story of helplessness and crushing loneliness giving way to life-giving, beautiful experiences. Also, it is a commentary on the deep wounds and scars that bullies inflict.
