With his mother gone, the boy is alone. A man in tattered armour appears at the boy's door claiming to be his uncle. He tells the boy that people are coming to kill him. The boy leaves with the stranger.

Our fantasy film tells the tale of a man hardened by war, a magically gifted young boy who is grieving the loss of his mother and the two learning to survive in the harsh world while being pursued by ruthless killers.

Our story's core themes are responsibility, loss and perseverance.

Responsibility - Despite their differences, the Warrior feels obligated to look after the Boy. Although they clash, the Warrior still wants to make sure the Boy stays safe.

Loss - Both the Warrior and the Boy have lost someone important to them. They both deal with that in their own ways - whether it's by silence or violence. The Warrior and the Boy are a grieving duo.

Perseverance - Times are tough and life doesn't seem to care if the Warrior and Boy are already down on their luck - it will still deal them another blow. The two must learn to overcome their obstacles, simply by not giving up.

plan of action

Making a film is not cheap! We want our film to be visually stunning and to achieve this, we have to ensure we can cover the costs of the perfect locations, costumers for our actors, etc. Music will also play a critical role in creating the right atmospheric feel for the Warrior and the Boy's world.
