"The Mountain and the Valley" is an affectionate portrait of David Canaan, a sensitive boy who becomes increasingly aware of the difference that sets him apart from his family and his neighbours. David's desire to write is the secret that gives this haunting story its detailed focus and its poignant theme.
Set in the years leading up to World War II and against the backdrop of the Annapolis Valley's natural beauty, "The Mountain and the Valley" captures a young man's spiritual awakening and the gradual growth of artistic vision.
