Synopsis

Desperate to escape persecution at school and at home, 9-year-old James wanders the docks of his quiet coastal hometown until he befriends Henry, a middle-aged retired psychiatrist who's building a boat to sail around the world. One fateful night, when James is separated from his beautiful but deeply troubled mother, Henry teaches him the greatest magic trick of all -- how to live in the happy place found somewhere between fantasy and reality. This comes in handy when James is dragged through the foster care system after his mother is committed to a mental institution.
