The Rocket

A boy who is believed to bring bad luck to everyone around him leads his family and a couple of ragged misfits through Laos to find a new home. After a calamity-filled journey through a land scarred by the legacy of war, to prove he's not cursed he builds a giant rocket to enter the most dangerous competition of the year: the Rocket Festival. Set in the rarely seen tribal mountains of Laos, The Rocket is gripping yet heart-warming cinema in the vein of the Oscar winning Salaam Bombay, Central Station, The Motorcycle Diaries and the kids' story in Slumdog Millionaire, with a touch of Little Miss Sunshine. It is a universal story about the determination of a boy who has the odds stacked against him, about overcoming self-doubt, about forgiveness and the power of unconditional love.
