The giant sailor prepares for his next voyage, shovelling more coal into the boiler, and scrubbing the deck. As he carefully checks his passengers’ tickets, a little girl places a red autumn leaf in his hand. The sailor is instantly reminded of the smells, colours and sounds of his home. He hasn’t been home in a long while, and he realises it’s time he returned. Will it still look exactly the way it looked before he left? How will it feel to go back after such a long time?
