About this title

Synopsis:

In a parable destined to be a classic for all ages, The Gift tells a story about two friends, a rabbit and a pumpkin. The language is simple and the story spare yet within it lie profound lessons about life, love, death, and renewal.

Angela the pumpkin, moved by the beauty of the world around her, willingly sacrifices herself to provide light, love, and life to others. Sammy the rabbit watches as his friend becomes first a lantern to help people who are afraid of the dark, then pumpkin pie to provide nourishment, and finally seeds to give birth to new life.
