A poetic tale on the dangers of a fragmented family, where the children's world of dragons and witches proves wiser than their parents' mechanical one.
A fishermen's village hanging on the steep slopes of a small bay. Outside, a lonely old house standing on the cliffs. Within, three siblings spend most of their time in the attic. They do not know it, but they are at serious risk of getting lost in a home besieged by silence, with an absent father and a withdrawn mother, who have slowly drifted from their children.
But after a storm everything changes for the Flint siblings when they discover a stranded dragon. When they name him Errol, and agree to help him, they do not understand fully the task they are taken upon themselves. Yet, through delights and sorrows, the four friends keep true to their purpose, trust each other, face threatening witches and also painful corners of their own hearts, finally allowing themselves just to be, not least a water dragon.
Together they weave a story for parents and children to share together, for in the end we forget to our own peril that we inhabit the same world, and it is foolish to state something does not exist simply because we have not seen it. This is a story to claim pride for who we are.
