Synopsis: A young school boy visiting his aunt's country house finds company and friendship with the gentle beekeeper and begins teaching the man to read, so that it seems nothing can ever intrude upon their closeness.

On another beach a more sinister plot unfolds as a gang of boys plans the most wicked deed.
