Based freely on the work and early life of surrealist artist Rene Magritte, this is an unorthodox adventure in theatrical form.  It celebrates art and the imagination and the ways in which these help us confront life's mysteries.  Here is the story of young Rene who wants to be an artist, a notion dismissed by his father as "a pipe dream."  Encouraged by his mother, before her untimely death, the boy begins his quest.  He follows his vision into the delightfully absurd magic-realism of his famous paintings.  The boy and the audience discover something of the true power of dreams and the triumph of imagination.
