Pete and his parents are driving along one day – reading a story called Elliot Gets Lost – when suddenly the car crashes. Pete spends the next six years of his life in a North American forest – relying on his mother’s lingering words reminding him to be brave – with a newfound companion: a big green dragon that he names Elliot. Fiercely protective of each other, the two must evade capture from a mercenary hunter or risk being separated forever. This live-action remake of the 1977 children’s classic is an emotional and adventurous tale of loss, independence and the bonds of friendship.
