Life is so busy! On his way to school, Joe is missing all the exciting things happening around him - he is in such a rush, he doesn't even notice his little sister crying! Given a task to draw what he saw on his way to school, Joe decides to stop time to appreciate all the little details that make life meaningful, and find out why Poppy was crying.
Soon, literally, and metaphorically, things become much clearer, as Joe learns to appreciate the importance of taking your time and noticing what is happening around you.
