In the trailer, Tom’s character is seen speaking to a man who asks him: ‘What’s your business up here?’

He responds: ‘I read the news from town to town. I was headed down south, I found this child.’ 

His character moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe.
