Where the Wild Things Are

There's one in all of us.


Where the Wild Things Are
After a fight with his mom, a little boy retreats to his room, and then into his own private fantasy world across, the sea, in a land populated by large creatures. There is a lot of discord in this land, and our little hero sets about setting things right... which of course mirrors things in his real world back home.

99 minutes.
