The Big Magic
Inspired by the paintings of Marc Chagall, The Big Magic is about when the world stops turning, and the desperate, dangerous search to find what will make it start again: the Big Magic that makes the world go round. This sometimes funny, sometimes scary story of Bombo’s quest explores the relationship between fear and selfishness.
