A boy is traveling across an island on a motorcycle, trying to escape a dark spirit and get back home. Along the way he makes a series of connections with di?erent animals and re?ects on the possible ways he ended up on the island. Part dream, part reality, and in a way, the story-line/narrative is a re?ection of the creative process of the making of the ?lm itself. The main idea of AWAY is our common, universal need to ?nd a connection.
