SYNOPSIS

In 1932 writer Fritiof Nilsson Piraten wrote a book about a 14-year-old boy named Bombi Bitt described as a wild rascal akin to Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn. He's barefoot, freckled, ragged and dirty and a free spirit ready for any adventure. Eli, the proper son of the station master, becomes his admiring partner.
