An American brings his daughter from the bright lights of the USA to the mystical landscapes of Cornwall, with the intention of reviving the tin mining tradition. But the ghosts of the mines have other ideas.
A marvelous film about the secret life of children who are all too often forgotten and left to their own devices in the day-to-day activities of adults and what happens when another boring Saturday is suddenly made not-so-boring with the discovery of a mysterious little alien being with unusual powers, who is scared, hungry and very lost.
Hilarious and fast paced adventure from a child's eye view, with exciting chases, escapes and pratfalls. General chaos and havoc are wreaked on a small town as the Army and an evildoer gangster independently seek to capture the alien for their own purposes and collide with a group of children who have joined forces to help the little alien-who only wants to return home.
It's about being very small in a big scary world, and the power of friendship and trust. Highest recommendation.
