The autumn equinox has officially marked the end of summer as we transition into autumn. Leaves are falling, temperatures are dropping and days are becoming shorter. October brings us harvest festivals, atmospheric morning mists, shimmering light in bronzed woodlands and, of course, home comforts. So, grab your jumper, plump up your cushions and delight in the season that is tailor-made for curling up with a good book.

You will be introduced to Rick and Maya, who are typical young people of today, finding it difficult to envision the future with hopes and dreams frustrated with relationships. They meet the young people of the Oratory, get involved in various activities, and through eye-opening experiences, are helped to grow. In the end, they return to their present-day life to start anew with the positive outlook on life learnt from Don Bosco. The central message is to have faith in someone, and to have someone who has faith in you, and the key to this is staying 'together'.
