Jeremy Glass is an untroubled little boy until his seventh birthday, when he suddenly announces that he is really a grown man called Danny, who died some years before. How can his parents indulge his conviction that he must find his real family? And how can his eerie insistence on his true identity not resurrect painful memories for Danny’s widow?
With songs from Tim Finn adding expressionistic commentary on the action, Matt Cameron’s Poor Boy delivers a supernatural story steeped in loss, anguish and redemption.
