Logline: Pirate, an imaginary dog, struggles with his creator’s Frankie growing up. One night, Pirate leaves Frankie’s room for the first time and gets into Fantasylum – a gloomy shelter for imaginary pets. The place is ruled by Jeerella the cat, who leads and persuades the other animals to hate their creators. Pirate does everything in his doggy power to find his way back to Frankie. Pirate’s journey – packed with adventures and extraordinary characters – actually talks about growing up and dealing with your own imagination. For growing up is unavoidable, and that’s ok.
