Synopsis

When a move to a new house coincides with his baby sister's illness, Michael's world suddenly seems lonely and uncertain. Then, one afternoon he stumbles into the old ramshackle garage at the end of the garden, and finds something that will change his world forever.

Skellig is a strange and extraordinary creature, as ancient as the earth and now intent on a life of nothing and nobody. With his new friend Mina who teaches him to look at the world through different eyes, Michael nourishes the reluctant Skellig back to health, while his parents are preoccupied with this baby sister lying in hospital. When Micheal realises that Skellig may have much more power than he would ever admit to, he knows he has to give Skellig back faith in his own power to heal, before it is too late.
