As her son grows up from little boy to adult man, a mother secretly rocks him each night as he sleeps
A young mother holds her newborn son and sings him a song of endearment. As he grows older, he becomes an active two-year-old, a rebellious teenager, and an adult. Throughout, the mother holds him while he sleeps and sings him the same song. When she grows old and becomes sick, it's the son's turn to hold her and sing it to her--just as he now does with his own baby. This simple story is about the enduring nature of a parent's love and how it crosses the generations.
