The Moonchild

To touch the moon, you have to catch a falling star.

When Charlie meets Essie as a young child in outback Australia, he’s drawn to her in a way he doesn’t understand. She’s so different to him, yet somehow they’re exactly the same.

As they kick up the red sand of the desert by day and sit on the porch with their eyes glued to the stars by night, they learn that they’re capable of so much more than they imagined.

Never forgetting the time they spent together, when they meet again as adults they discover the impact they had on each other’s lives. But when Essie’s star threatens to fall, Charlie refuses to believe that he may not be able to catch her this time.
