Description: Inspired by the life and work of the surrealist painter Rene Magritte, the story follows a young boy who wants to be an artist. Though his desire is dismissed by his father as "a pipe dream", he is encouraged by his mother, and begins a quest into the delightfully absurd magic-realism of Magritte’s famous paintings.  A celebration of art, the imagination, and the ways in which they help us confront life's traumas and mysteries.
