Join us for a special screening of the Audience Award winner at the 2019 Tumbleweeds Film Festival.
William’s life is anything but easy. His mother is a patient in a sanitarium, so he lives with his uncle Nils, who lives on his wits and has racked up a sizeable gambling debt with some local gangsters. William has to muster all of his courage and imagination to save both his uncle and himself, while also juggling three class bullies and his crush on his neighbor Viola.
