From a deep love of family, and the profound relationship between a grandparent and grandchild comes “INTO THE CLOUDS”. This stop-motion, animated feature film serves as a reminder of that special bond between a grandfather and his grandson. Ours is a story about love and loss. It is a powerful portrayal of the stages of grief through the eyes of a child. INTO THE CLOUDS is perfect vehicle for opening up a dialogue between kids and parents, to discuss and process the loss of a beloved family member.
Following the death of his grandfather, six-year-old Jason Applesmith is gently told by his parents that his grandfather is gone. Unable to grasp this news, his parents elaborate by declaring that his grandfather has gone “Into The Clouds”. Jason takes this message literally, and along with his friends, sets out on an adventure to reach the clouds and find his Grandpa.
Jason is joined by his gang of imagined characters, including: a fast-talking lemon, a neurotic stuffed alligator, over-zealous superhero, workaholic snowman, a spirited roller-girl, a pet cockatiel, and a man made of clothes.
With the help of his imaginary friends and a little ingenuity, Jason hatches elaborate plots to get into the sky, drawing closer to reaching the clouds each time.
