Synopsis

Living in a children's home, 11-year-old Michael has never met his parents; that is until he finds a lost letter from his mother which tells him where his father lives. Struggling to fit in with the other kids, he ventures out to find him but is surprised to discover his father Tom is a dwarf. Although Tom is excited and a little nervous to learn the ropes of fatherhood, Michael deals with embarrassment and bullying from his friends when they see them together. However, when he moves in with Tom, they get to know each other, developing a close bond while also facing some life-changing realisations. This is a compassionate film about human connection and a young person’s growing sense of identity that celebrates finding commonalities in difference.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
