As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team — and later its leader — Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.”

“The beloved classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in this fascinating, ragtag epic directed by Benh Zeitlin. Set on a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued, this humanistic, naturalistic and mythological film follows an amazing story of children from vastly different worlds. When an adventurous young girl named Wendy (Devin France) follows her spirited nature, she lands on a seemingly magical island. Together with her happy, reckless, pleasure-seeking new friend Peter (Yashua Mack), she explores the island in all its wonder, and gets to know this spectacular land’s other inhabitants. Soon, though, it’s clear that Wendy is in a fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up, with the most powerful ability she has – love. Filled with breathtaking beauty, danger and adventure, this thought-provoking film is one you’ll never forget.”
