This Saturday night daylight savings time will be over for the season. An hour after midnight, the clock will strike "one." But an hour later, the clock will strike "one" again. These sixty minutes suspended in time will prove to Eddie McCourt to be the most precious of his young life. Born on Ocober 31st, nine-year-old Eddie has a special birthday wish this year - to see his twin brother Brian who fell from their tree house and passed away just three weeks before. Somehow, though, the bonds of communication between these two little boys have not been broken. Eddie knows that somehow Brian is still alive. Eddie also knows that somehow Brian is expecting him, and that this extraordinary hour when time stands still will serve as his vehicle of transport. In a thrilling and other-worldly Halloween adventure, Eddie seeks to celebrate his birthday with his brother and along the way develops a new understanding of life so profound that not only his life, but the lives of all those around him will be changed forever because of "The Magic Hour."
