A short fantasy adventure film with undertones of drama. We follow Max; a young boy as he struggles through his parents' divorce, he uses the fantasy role-playing game 'Fantopia' as a form of escapism in an attempt to liberate himself from his real-life problems.
When playing the game, we are transported to the imagined world of 'Fantopia' where the child players role-play as fantasy adult characters and with the use of carefully constructed metaphors in the fantasy world, we show how Max is dealing with problems in the real world.
