Synopsis

Expectations are high for nine-year-old Draper Doyle, the sole heir of a once prosperous and influential Newfoundland family. But he is plagued by nightmares concerning the mysterious circumstances surrounding his father's death. In an effort to cure him, his highly religious family enrolls him in Father Seymour's "Number" program for orphan boys that is best described as a cross between the Vienna Boy's Choir and the Hitler Youth Movement.
