Synopsis

11-year-old Nim lives on a remote tropical island with her scientist father, whiling away much of her time in a fantasy world inspired by her hero, adventure novelist Alex Rover. So when she finds herself fending for herself when her dad gets lost at sea, who better to turn to than Alex? Trouble is, unlike her daring characters, the real Alex suffers from agoraphobia and hasn't left her house in weeks. Determined to face her fears and help her biggest fan, Alex sets off to Nim's magical island for an adventure of a lifetime.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
