He doesn’t want to go home, he doesn’t want to go to sleep, and he doesn’t want to get up either! But Bo is patient. He knows that Koko will come home when he is bored, will go to sleep when he is tired, and will get up when he is hungry—he just has to wait for Koko to figure it out for himself. Koko and Bo is about two people, one big and one small, quietly negotiating the relationship between freedom and trust to reach a better understanding of each other and the world.
