TORONTO STORIES

In the chaos of Pearson International Airport, a boy arrives in Toronto, not speaking a word of English. Before the authorities can pin down his origins, the boy disappears, and an amber alert reverberates through the city. Meanwhile, the boy finds his way into town where he accidentally witnesses a budding romance, an escaped convict reconnecting with an old friend, and two kids on a quest to find the Cabbagetown Monster - all the while remaining undiscovered. Finally, a one-time university professor, now on the streets, spots the lost boy. But, when the man approaches the authorities, his mental illness casts doubt on his credibility.
