"Copilots never let each other down."

After the death of his father, eight year old Stan uses his own fantasy as his main coping mechanism. The day he and his family are about to move, Stan thinks that he shot down a plane. Frightened but with confident spirit, he goes into the woods to find the crashed device.

Written & directed by Domien Huyghe
