Young Daavi and his beloved sister Shoshana live next door to the village carpenter Yeshu.
Entranced by tales the carpenter spins as he works, the boy becomes Yeshu's helper, learning of a starpath upon which enlightened people can journey.
This lesson is deepened by Yeshu's wilderness-walking cousin, Yohanan, who shows Daavi how nature's humblest creatures can be guides to the Spirit moving within us.
