Based on the novel by Mark Twain

The lovable Tom Sawyer and his pals take us back to the sweet summer days when sternwheelers commanded the mighty Mississippi.

The problem is, they don't have the power to save us or transform us into new creations. Luckily, it doesn't have to be that way. (more...)
