Description:
What happens when a child is left alone in a forest? A suspense-laden adventure film about survival in the wild where man is friend to wolf.
On a vacation car trip to Sweden, nine-year-old Bruno is going on his parents' nerves. They want to go back to nature for a digital detox and Bruno just wants to stay home and play computer games with his digital friend Taiki. On the way, tensions flare and Bruno is left by the roadside for punishment. When Bruno's parents return to pick him up, however, the boy has disappeared into the Swedish forest where he finally learns that the real world is much more exciting than the world of computers.
"I read an article about parents in Japan who left their child by the side of the road. He was lost in a forest full of wild animals. I cut out the article and placed it in my inspiration folder. A few days later I received a call from a producer who wanted to make a film in Sweden based on that same article. I studied there and still have a soft spot for the country, so I did not hesitate about taking the offer." (Mirjam de With)
