Willie is a quiet, sad child with a deprived and disturbing past, but he slowly begins to flourish under the care of `Mister Tom` and enjoys an idyllic village life. Greenway, and persuades him that the only reason he wants Willie back is because he loves him like his own son and that Willie has clearly been happier with him than he ever was when he lived with his mother.
