Storyline

Young Christopher Millard fantasizes about being a squire of the Round Table and studies the stars. But when his difficulty breathing turns out to be caused by a tumor, his fantasies turn into a means to battle the disease. Chemotherapy eats his summer and instead of writing the standard "What I did during my summer vacation", his teacher lets him write a fictional story, and Chris makes characters from the people around him. As Chris battles with doctor, treatments, and the illness, Squire Millard goes on a quest against an evil sorceress to gain the four diamonds of Courage, Wisdom, Honesty, and Strength: qualities that Chris himself attains as his health fails.

A powerful, creative, well done film
12 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is perfect in every way i can think of. Great acting so the characters fell very real; great script, with very funny lines at times; great score; interesting story; and great morals presented in an interesting way. The story of Chris is a moving one, where, when he gets cancer, goes through tough times by losing his friends and the family starts to drift apart, while sir Millard wishes to gain his freedom and rid the land of an evil sorceress and become a knight by going on quests that teach him valuable lessons of life that everyone should possess: courage, wisdom, honesty, and strength. The scenes near the end, about memories of the family together, and Chris expressing his feeling of frustration and Dr. Burke trying to help are sad and moving.

an excellent film.
