Come Again in Spring
Old Hark enjoys living in his weather-beaten house, chopping wood, doing his chores and reflecting on his long life. His greatest joy is feeding the birds that have wintered over and have come to depend on him. When a black-robed figure materializes out of the fields, brandishing the Book of Time, an exchange follows. The old man must reach deep into his memory to answer three questions, so that he may continue to feed the birds next spring. Come Again in Spring is a tale about mortality, responsibility and fate. The film is adapted from a story by Richard Kennedy.
