In a Perth County farmhouse some time during the 1930s, a boy named Owen decides to spend the summer putting on plays with the help of his cousins, his grown-up relatives and the neighbourhood children. One of the plays they put on is their adaptation of a Victorian novel, The Saga of Caresfoot Court. In James Reaney’s Listen to the Wind, we watch a double story unfold: we see Owen fighting illness and trying to get his parents back together again; and we see Angela Caresfoot treading her way through a world of evil manor-houses and sinister Lady Eldreds. The two stories intertwine and illuminate each other.
