"Scenes in a Roman Theater"

Hedi gets pretty bored selling straw hats to tourists in the ruins of an ancient Roman theater--and bullying by two other boys doesn't make it any more fun. Then one day an artist comes to paint in the theater, and Hedi starts to see the ruins--and his life--in a wholly new light. A story about Tunisia, North Africa.
