Kasper attempts to answer some pretty big questions: can we trace the chain of events that leads to our own birth? Is our existence just a coincidence? Do little things matter? As Kasper’s quest for inspiration unfolds, it appears that a spell of bad weather, an angry dog, slippery barn planks, a careless postman, hungry goats, and other seemingly unrelated factors might play important roles in the big scheme of things after all.
