Storyline

In a slanted dwelling beyond the outskirts of a drought-ridden town, a close Hispanic family accept an impossible blessing and name their only son Sailboat. Sailboat stirs new love and hope in his family who forge a simple but proud life in the deep South West of America, but one afternoon he brings home something more: a "little guitar". From this moment, Sailboat and his ukulele are inseparable, and when his gravely ill grandmother instructs him to write a song for her, Sailboat meanders through adversity to deliver the unimaginable - the greatest song ever written. Will the song breathe one final miracle, or reveal a hapless twist of fate that will return his family to a house held up by a "stick", a car without doors, an unchanging wardrobe, and a friend who can't blink?

A true gem
20 August 2018 | by papatazaSee all my reviews

It only happens not so often that you stumble upon a movie, book, song or any other (still obviously hidden?) gem so beautiful and fulfilling, still hidden and unknown that takes you and carries you to the sky of joy, happiness and positive emotions... We carry all what we need with us. A bedtime lifetime story. Movie full of beautiful photos and music, amazing characters, a fantasy that makes you feel better.. A true must see
