An emotionally traumatized stage magician has "escaped" into a fantasy world where he has real magical powers, but his career has taken him to performing at childrens' birthday parties. However, if he can find another stage assistant, his sleezy manager will give him another stage opportunity. Mostly he needs to find his way out of his mental state and that path is guided by some unexpected people he meets. This first feature by Andy Conlan is a valiant effort, given the low budget. The original soundtrack is excellent and the camera work is better than expected. Worth a viewing.
