Opal dream (Pobby and Dingan) - Vince Colosimo, Jacqueline McKenzie, Peter Cattaneo

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Some things have to be believed to be seen.

Pobby and Dingan live in Lightning Ridge, the opal capitol of Australia. They are friends with Kellyanne Williamson (Saphire Boyce), the daughter of opal miner Rex Williamson (Vince Colosimo) - but only Kellyanne can see them. Pobby and Dingan are imaginary. Kellyanne's brother, Ashmol (Christian Byers), thinks his sister should grow up and stop being such a fruit-loop - until the day when Pobby and Dingan disappear, the same day that his father is accused of ratting, the worst sin an opal miner can commit.

As Kellyanne, grief-stricken, begins to fade away, Ashmol recruits the whole town in the search for Pobby and Dingan. In the end, however, he discovers that only he can find them, and he can only find them if he too begins to believe they are real. Opal dream is an enchanting, funny and profoundly moving story.
