Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2012

Laura is rudely roused from her sleep by the agitated cries of her little brother Tommy. Dream monsters have stolen his “protect-me-dog”. How are they supposed to get him back? Luckily Laura’s Star comes to their aid. His stardust makes Tommy’s bed lift off the ground and this is the beginning of an exciting journey for the children. They fly towards the colourful dreamland where the dream monsters live in an underground labyrinth. As they are afraid of light there is nothing they fear more than the children protector: Laura’s Star. A big adventure lies ahead of Tommy, Laura and her Star.


Laura viene svegliata bruscamente dal pianto agitato del suo fratellino Tommy: i mostri dei sogni hanno rubato il suo cagnolino, un peluche che lo faceva sentire protetto. Come faranno a recuperarlo? Fortunatamente la stella di Laura accorre in loro aiuto. La sua polvere magica fa librare in volo il letto di Tommy, dando inizio a un fantastico viaggio. I due fratellini volano tra gli sfavillanti colori del mondo dei sogni, dove i mostri vivono in un labirinto sotterraneo. Temono la luce, ma niente li spaventa più della Stella di Laura, protettrice dei bambini. Tommy, Laura e la sua Stella vivranno insieme una meravigliosa avventura.
