Storyline

A magical-realistic look at a divorce through a child's eyes. Nikolas Orville Remington is a 10 year old boy that is still coping with the changes his new step-father brings; one of them being his mother's unhappiness and regret of having made another 'mistake.' Though Nikolas uses his action figures to escape from his reality. Each time he fantasizes his father as a hero winning back his mother from his seemingly nefarious step-father. Through a series of enlightened moments, Nikolas begins to grow out of his childhood and accept that things can't always be the way you want them to be. Written by Anonymous

Wonderfully Imaginative
26 March 2014 | by spike_0401See all my reviews

Christiano Dias does a wonderful job bringing us back to those days filled with imagination. I am fondly brought back to a time of hiding under and around my bed creating stories. The cinematography is nothing short of flawless. Beautiful angles and shots that keep you engaged. The story covers a great deal in a short amount of time. I'd love to see this film drawn out a little more with some back story. Absolutely enjoyable all the way through. Capturing your imagination and your interest of wanting to know the characters better. I wanted to understand where they came from and what they were working towards. Although, this anybody's story as well, very relatable. The actors give us a fun and sincere glimpse of day to day life. Its an entertaining peek at an imaginative childlike perspective. Thank you for this refreshing tale.
