Synopsis

After he is bullied at school, autistic sixteen-year-old Keaton runs away to his attic, high above the danger that lurks below. Within its confines is Craig, an old Christmas decoration and Keaton’s childhood imaginary friend. But with his sister Eliza arriving to entice him out and Craig's attempts to cheer him up not working the way they used to, is it time for Keaton to abandon the safety of the attic? Is the solution to his problems within him?
