Cyrus the Far Sighted One

Cyrus the Far Sighted One

by Laurie Montemurro

Cyrus lives in Toronto where the gap between rich and poor has created a city of slums, black markets and beggars. Every day, Cyrus begs for money to provide for his family. But when his wife threatens to leave him, and take their daughter too, he is faced with a devastating choice.
