But, placed as a monument high above the city, he alone sees the suffering below—a young girl conflicted by feelings of inferiority, a young boy without a home living in the streets, a writer who has lost the desire to write. With the help of a wise-cracking sparrow named Boid, the prince makes it his mission to help the townspeople. Learn More
