“A SUBLIMELY
PERFECT FILM.”

THE STORY

A child's journey through family breakdown

The messiness and heartbreak of divorce is well-documented territory in film.  But rarely if ever, has it been captured from the child’s point of view.   Tommy, a short-length feature film about a young boy, whose parents are ensnared in a bitter custody battle, follows the journey of a child trying to escape the bitterness and violence he sees around him, from those who are meant to love him best.

Tommy is a compelling book for children and parents and a useful resource for any separated family to assist children to make sense of it all. The aim is easy – as we all want our kids to grow up into well balanced and psychologically healthy adults.

Tommy is just the read to help kids understand that they are not alone.
