Ben and Me
While a group of human children learn of the achievements of Benjamin Franklin, above them, on his memorial statue, a group of young mice are being told the real story: that of the mouse behind Benjamin’s inspirational success, Amos. Bright, able and intelligent; Amos leaves his humble church home for the sake of his family and, not too long after meeting Franklin, becomes his assistant, aide and partner.
