Trouble Nubble Gum
A name equals man, a thought equals action.
When Petryk, a schoolboy, just mentally takes revenge on his classmates and erases their names from a letter to him, they disappear from the real world and fall into the land of Baronia. In order to save them, Petryk must change himself and discover the secret of Baronia. This land is full of strange and funny inhabitants, but the ruler Baron Primadon is insidious and cruel. Together with his friend Kate and teacher Bonny, Petryk goes to Baronia to bring their friends back. Petryk turns from an avenger into a hero and conquers the cruel world of Baronia.
"We all are familiar with it; the feeling of being hurt and bearing a grudge. The film teaches us what effect this emotion can have on our close environment and the bad impact of living the emotion to its fullest. It is important to show Petryk’s way, to convey Petryk’s transformation from a little avenger to a person driven by loyalty to his friends, to a true hero. This journey can be perfectly shown in the mystical land with its various characters and the different obstacles Petryk has to overcome. We will create even more dynamics, humour and drama, so that Petryk’s journey to a hero will create a pure Wow-effect. The original visual style that has not been used in animation yet will give the characters made of rubber their authentic existence. The emotional footprint from history continuously changes as the plot develops. Until its end, the film delivers a delightful, high-spirited feeling to the viewer. It will convey the power and undeniable importance of friendship."
