Eleven-year-old Juhan, nicknamed Juks loves to write more than anything. Whether it's a haiku or an adventure story, a travelogue or a newspaper article, an apothegm or a sports story, they all sound equally interesting. Yet, despite the interest, Juks never manages to finish a single story, no matter how he tries. Is it possible to become a writer if the only things you write are never-ending stories?
