Synopsis for Smallman: The World My Father Made

Kenwyn Rawlins had a passion for making things. In a workshop beneath his house he made push toys, model battleships, miniature furniture and dolls’ houses. Smallman is an exploration of the world that Kenwyn Rawlins made, as told by his son Richard.
