Mrs. Bartolotti has an bad habit: she is a fanatic about ordering things in the mail. One day, a special package arrives: a seven-year-old boy inside a can! The little boy’s name is Konrad, and he arrives pre-fabricated to be a “perfect son.” The two become fond of one another, until one day the factory discovers the error and will do anything to get him back. Mother and child will also do anything to prevent this from happening.
This is a moving story about the bonds that can grow between two people who meet by chance and who, after a time, simply can’t be separated.
