The ‘Dom’; a giant corn tree Eden for crows but also for Widda, a spider, grown monstrously huge from eating her kin. Purple, mate Pitch, son Purpie and Flic friends resolve to rescue fledgelings caged and tortured by Widda. Swift, awesome; her body armored by an oyster shell, she seems invincible. A tale of courage, sacrifice and death as told by unappreciated story ‘Teller’ – Purpie.
