Old Fellow is a character-based story about 61-year-old Frederick Foster. He is prematurely retired, widowed, lonesome, bored out of his wits and a bit lost – until he meets Oliver Appleby, a curious young boy who shares Frederick’s passion for astronomy and reignites his long lost zest of life.
It’s the beginning of a fruitful friendship for both Oliver and Frederick. From the encounter Frederick learns a lot about coping with his situation, while on the same hand it has a soothing influence on the relationship between the boy and his mother. It is a collection of quirky characters, all loveable in their very own and special way, who, by letting one another into each other’s lives, learn how to cope with the struggles that life has thrown at them.
