For centuries lighthouses have served as navigational aids for maritime pilots at sea, warning ships of hidden coastlines and hazardous shoals and pointing to safe entries to harbors. In “The Storyteller,” Colleen McHale travels to her hometown of Rogers City, Michigan, in order to find some personal direction following a brief but brilliant stint as an up – and – coming architect in Ann Arbor. She visits 40 Mile Point Lighthouse, a favorite place from her childhood. There she meets a perceptive stranger, who, through his stories, shines a light on some of the most important things about life and living that she’s recently lost sight of. Colleen rediscovers her own core values, and the lessons learned from the history and heritage of the people of Northern Michigan.
