THE NEVERENDING STORY

“But that’s IMPOSSIBLE!”

On his way to school, Bastian (Barret Oliver) ducks into a bookstore to avoid the neighborhood bullies. Sneaking away with a book called The Neverending Story, Bastian begins reading it in the school attic. The novel is about Fantasia, a fantasy land threatened by “The Nothing,” a darkness that destroys everything it touches. The kingdom needs the help of a human child to survive. When Bastian reads a description of himself in the book, he begins to wonder if Fantasia is real and needs him to survive.
