The Sunboy tells the story of a young boy terrified by the idea that his father wants to kill him. So he takes refuge in a dream world but still plagued by a beast named Alakiar that destroys the kingdom slowly. Feeling himself the king and savior, the junction between reality and fantasy becomes thin.
This project will highlight the notion of duality that can exist between reality and imagination of a child. Of this, will rise the symbol of the father by the beast.
We don't want to make an intellectual movie, but a musically and cinematically one which will satisfy our expectations (and yours!).
