The Story

A great Prince arrives in Dover, and seems to want to know everything about life in England - or is it life on Earth he wants to know about? In this mystical story of the Seen and Unseen, the Prince appears in many settings and leaves an enduring impression on those he meets.

His questions, though they seem to vary, concern the one thing that only Man has, not any other creature of God.
