    The Story of Marco is a beautiful tale of triumph over trials. The town of Gaylordville is relieved when a gypsy camp that had been in their hills for weeks finally breaks camp and leaves. Scarcely had Gaylordville drawn its long breath of relief, however, when it suddenly awoke to the fact that its troubles were by no means over - the gypsies were not gone, after all. There still remained a sick woman and a nine-year-old boy, Marco. When Marco's mother dies in the hills, his only companion is his beloved violin.
