One crisp Sunday morning, a local poet is rummaging through an estate sale in Montreal. He finds a poetry book, buried in a box. It costs him ten cents. He brings the book home and realises that he has found a forgotten Canadian treasure...

The author of the found book is Charles Bruce, a writer of six books of poetry and winner of the Governor General's Award.
