A daughter's idyllic life is turned upside‐down by
immense tragedy. As she grows older, her cynicism
and apathy towards her new reality is challenged by
a reminder from the past that sets her on a pilgrim‐
age that will define her.
This mul!‐award winning film was wri$en by the
band Cloud Cult and contains no dialogue to tell the
story, only music and lyrics. Though not one word
is spoken, the powerful story is driven by the lush
soundtrack upon which it is based. “The Seeker” is
a unique and compelling film not to be missed.

The love of an enchanted young girl brings wonder
and healing to a broken family. On the run from her
mysterious past and guided by a fairy that no one
else can see, Abby wanders into a nursing home
carrying her most prized possession, an old copy of
Peter Pan.
Sparking a daisy chain of compassion, Abby brings
joy and music back into the family. Closed hearts
open, passions are ignited and the child‐like won‐
der that evaporated from their lives, comes flood‐
ing back. "The Storyteller" is a powerful explora!on
of belief and the true defini!on of family. Through
the eyes of a girl, it ques!ons the idea that cynicism
and irony are the only valid ways to understand the
complexity of character.
