This captivating script mixes the magic and imagination that can only be experienced in childhood, with the delicate tragedy of facing reality, and creates a beautiful, heartwarming story that can be enjoyed by all ages. The relationships and interactions between characters were defined and believable, including Ella's imaginary friendship with Sebastian. A strong script and the story lingers with it's audience far after the scene is over.

On vacation to an aged amusement park, Ella meets an intriguing boy named Sebastian.
