A Time To Run
Stuart can run like the wind. It’s a skill that has come in handy for him all his life. Born with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), Stuart has learned to run away from all kinds of trouble – at least, if he can recognize it. Sometimes it’s hard for him to know when a friend really is a friend or when he’s just bad news.
Sam is a basketball player destined to play on a university varsity team until he is sidelined by a dangerous heart condition. After losing the one thing that centres his world, Sam focuses his energy on helping his Best Buddy, Stuart, make the school track-and-field team.
But first, both Stuart and Sam must come to understand that there is a time to run and a time to stay where they belong.
