Brilliant, sensitive, observant and the pride of his community his future shines with promise. And yet at 33 he stands alone at the top of the South Mountain looking back at the miscommunications and the misunderstandings that have derailed his dreams. Adapted from the beloved novel by Earnest Buckler, The Mountain and the Valley asks how is it that such promise has not come to pass and can we ever begin again?
