A Boy Called Sailboat

A Hispanic family finds hope in their extraordinary son named Sailboat when a personal gesture awakens a global desire.

Sailboat and his ukulele are inseparable, and when his gravely ill grandmother instructs him to write a song for her, Sailboat meanders through adversity to deliver the unimaginable – the greatest song ever written.

Will the song breathe one final miracle, or reveal a hapless twist of fate that will return his family to a house held up by a “stick”, a car without doors, an unchanging wardrobe, and a friend who can’t blink?

Armed with a “little guitar,” Sailboat leads an offbeat cast into the miraculous story of the greatest secret never told.

Moonrise Kingdom meets Beasts of the Southern Wild in this quirky, charming tale about a young boy who brings a touch of magic to the world with his little guitar.
