Something’s alive at the bottom of an uncharted pond, and the 10 year old adventurer Cody (Henry Thomas of ET) is determined to find it. The action of this children’s movie (involving Aboriginal magic) is set in a remote town in southern Australia. The real adventure is Trenchard-Smith’s rediscovery of boyhood, with all its inventiveness, innocence and independent fearless strength.
