WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
An extraordinary visual story told without words, featuring puppetry, illusion and original music. Tommy can't sleep. He hasn't been able to since his mum died a year ago. Since then, life has gone from bad to worse. His dad is grief-stricken, his big sister ignores him and he's become the target for the school bully. Then one restless night, Tommy goes to the window, throws back the curtain and... ...a dragon is looking at him. Straight in the eye. Terrifying and destructive, but powerfully intoxicating, the dragon burns with the anger and hurt that Tommy feels and makes anything seem possible. They go everywhere together as if connected by invisible thread and suddenly life is much better again. But mysterious fires have started igniting across Glasgow's Garnethill.
