Can one boy really make a difference? Set in sun-kissed, rural Denmark in 1969, this touching tale follows 13 year-old Frits who, inspired by Martin Luther King, decides its time to take a stand against his bullying headmaster. With echoes of both Billy Elliot and If, and a central character that we are rooting for all the way, this beautifully acted film, suitable for children and adults alike, shows the importance of finding the courage to stand up for what you believe in, whatever age you are.
