11-year-old Leo discovers that he has the ability to fly through walls. Sick and confined to his bed in the day, at night he rises out of his body and blissfully floats over the dazzling skyline of Manhattan in this wonderfully animated piece of escapism.

The animation is truly original, with its bold colours giving the film a dreamy and highly stylised feel, which reflects the feeling of joy Leo encounters as he soars above the New York lights. The result is a bold visual film which still contains a lot of heart.
