A boy attempts to deal with his mother's illness and the bullying of his classmates by escaping to a fantastical world.
The mind of a child offers ripe pickings for the investigative eye of a perusing filmmaker. J. A. Bayona, of The Orphanage fame, having paired up with acclaimed author Patrick Ness, of Chaos Walking fame, tells a stirring tale of love and loss, anger and hope, and potentially most importantly, the agonizing buzz of misunderstood and misjudged emotions that force their way to the surface of childhood trauma.
