Plot outline: An eight-year old girl moves into a new house. Her parents, who are two workaholic-over-achievers, couldn’t be happier. Except, their beautiful new home neighbors a decrepit and decaying house lived in by a wacky old man known as the Aviator. He’s the town vagrant and self proclaimed space traveler of the world: Nobody believes him… that is, until he meets the little girl next door. Confined to a home built upon rules and plans geared towards nothing else but academic achievement, the little girl lusts to explore the stars and dream and remain a child forever. Against her parent’s wishes, the little girl befriends the Aviator who tells her of his travels through outer-space and meeting the Little Prince. After a malfunction with his plane, the Aviator ends up in the hospital, unable to travel back to see his old friend – the Little Prince. The little girl decides to fly the Aviator’s plan on an adventurous journey in search for the Little Prince … hopeful, not only to bring him back to the Aviator, but also to remind him what it is like to be a child.
