Synopsis

Adapted from the much-loved novel by David Almond, this is the story of a boy who finds a mysterious person living in the shed at the bottom of his garden. Michael has been going through a hard time since his baby sister was born with health problems, and his parents understandably don't have much time for him, so his friendship with the strange Skellig helps him through. But who, or what, is Skellig? The film's low-key fantasy elements fit naturally into an ordinary suburban setting, while staying true to the heart of an affecting story.
