How big is the world? Searching for an answer, a young boy waves goodbye to his classmates, hops the schoolyard fence and disappears into the city, swallowed by the din and decadence of its machines and masses and automobiles. Back at school, amidst a crowd of confused onlookers, the runaway's best friend, a young artist, smiles and waves goodbye with equal parts understanding and expectation: she is biding her time, preparing for her own adventure to begin.
