Hector Hugh Munroe (Saki) had a wonderful imagination. He was fascinated with the intricacies of the mind and the casual influence one can exert over others by the suggestive powers of language.

In "Child's Play" we find the story of a young boy's struggle for identity amid the conflict with his restrictive guardian. Each film represents the unique art of storytelling that was "Saki."
