In the autumn of 1684, two children find a dead man in a field. Within minutes, however, the dead man starts coming back to life. As if the transition isn't enough of an agonizing process, he also finds that he shares an empathic connection to the people and world around him. Rather than running in terror, 11-year-old Joanna Spijker expresses an odd fascination with the newly revived young man, even bringing him home and giving him a new name: Vincent.
