Words and pictures are combined to tackle a very sensitive subject, the death of a child. A kite comes to belong to Caitlin who is seriously ill. She dreams of the day she will get better and fly the kite. This does not happen but her final journey leads them to a place without pain and suffering.
Caitlin loves the kit her mother bought at a car-boot sale. She has a vision of climbing a mountain and flying the kite from the highest peak. But she is very ill and isn't going to get better. As she slips away, the kite promises to take her where the air is fresh and pure beyond the mightiest earthly summit, to the Great Mountain of Light.
