STORM BOY

Category: Feature Experience

The film is an adaptation of Colin Thiele's Australian classic. The novel's "Storm Boy" grew up to become Michael Kingley, a retired businessman and grandfather. When Kingley begins to have visions from his past he cannot explain, he is forced to recall his long-forgotten childhood living on an isolated stretch of coast with his father. Michael then tells his granddaughter the story of how, as a boy, he rescued and raised an orphaned pelican, Mr. Percival. Their adventures and the strong bond that united the boy to the animal will have a profound effect on the lives of all protagonists.
