Film Synopsis

This story is based on the adventures of the filmmakers' relative, Dr. Nathan S. Hale. Nathan wrote a memoir entitled Cut Boldly Down, Medicine, Nature, and a Life of Curiosity: A Surgeon's Memoir which is on many levels a very personal account of his life and members in his community. During the production of this film, the story became a reflection of Nathan's early childhood activities. By using key artifacts from his past as containers for his memories, and sets which are designed as virtual dioramas, this narrative animation is a visualization of Nathan's imagination and curiosity.
