The stars have fallen. They are buried beneath the snow. Meera's need to wake them leads her on a journey through a mysterious landscape that includes ice, water, mist - and a Dream Tree. Along the way to finding the stars, Meera, a clown, encounters a woman carved from wood in a booth, a fellow star-seeker, a mysterious Spinner, a fire-juggler, and more. The determination in Meera's steps and the hope in her heart, along with the support of friends she makes on her journey are all she needs to succeed in her mission to release the frozen stars.

The whimsical and at times frightening world through which Meera moves and the fanciful cast of characters that inhabit it are beautifully portrayed through photographs taken by Kathleen Finlay.
