Tough, rugged, and larger than life—a gentle giant of a sailor works diligently aboard a boat. He is way past getting seasick, but when a little girl gifts him a seemingly inconspicuous autumn leaf, he suddenly starts to feel a bit homesick. It’s so long since he’s been back, and he wonders what it would look like now. An endearing look at the concept of “home” and how even the littlest of things can hold the largest of significance.
