A film that works on many levels, about inspiration and
crushed hopes, the powerlessness of youth, and the
unrelenting opposing force of nature versus the proud
will of the human spirit.
A young boy witnesses the seashore fortress of Mont St Micheal and is inspired to
build his own fortress on the shore. However, lacking the strength of men, his
sandcastle falls easily to the uncaring might of the ocean, washing away his
hopes and dreams and ending the film on an almost tragic note. But still, the
message of respect for the forces out of our control, and the deep forethought
needed for the foundations of dreams lingers long after the last of the sand has
been washed into obscurity.
