Description

"What will I be when I grow up?" asks a little boy. The world around him supplies inspiring answers: A raindrop grows up to be a fast-running river. A green shoot grows up to be a tall and mighty tree. A shadow grows up to be a gentle night full of dreams.

In the end, the boy's greatest inspiration comes from the simplest of sources: his father's love.
