FILMS YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO SEE!


On the day Cate came into the world, her mum left it. Her dad is often distant and silent, so she keeps herself entertained with kung fu films, her pet rabbit and her photography. Then one afternoon Cate receives a mysterious invitation to an abandoned cinema, and everything changes.


Soon Cate meets the peculiar Mrs Kano and discovers a most unusual kind of movie screen - the kind that lets you step through it into a memory. So begins a wonder-filled adventure through time that will teach Cate the true meaning of love, loss and learning to let go.
