The NeverEnding Story

Lavish adaption of Michael Ende's bestselling novel. 10 year old Bastian is a typical loner. Continually bullied around by his classmates the sensitive boy seeks refuge in a second hand bookshop where he stumbles upon a very old storybook: "The Neverending Story". Bastian pilfers the book and immerses himself so deep into the story that he suddenly finds himself within a secret magical country called "Fantasia". There he has to prove himself in a number of exciting adventures featuring a lovable dragon, a huge rockbiter and a bonny princess.
