The story of two wayward lads

St. Petersburg, a small town on the banks of the Mississippi. This is where Tom Sawyer lives, and his escapades there make life difficult for his aunt Polly. His best friend is Huckleberry Finn. Recently Tom has been taking an interest in Becky. He tries to impress her with his boasting, without realising that he will get the opportunity to prove himself sooner than he likes. One night when Tom and Huck sneak into the graveyard, they witness a murder. Out of fear they agree to keep silent about the crime. But Tom’s conscience begins to nag him: should he risk his life and his friendship to Huck in order to rescue an innocent person?
