In rural Martinique, 8 year-old Joseph has to accept that his older brother is leaving for university whilst convinced that a dangerous Lentikri, an ancient monster, prowls around the house ready to prey on his family. In a sweet and charming look through Joseph’s eyes, he must prepare himself to defend his family and confront his fears. Tapping into everybody’s inner-child, Doubout carries the emotional weight of a child facing oncoming loneliness with the right balance of imagination.
