A boy, who is believed to bring bad luck to everyone around him, leads his family and a couple of ragged misfits through Laos to find a new home. After a calamity-filled journey through a land scarred by the legacy of war, to prove he's not cursed, he builds a giant rocket to enter the most dangerous competition of the year: The Rocket Festival. It is a universal story about the determination of a boy who has the odds stacked against him, about overcoming self-doubt, about forgiveness and the power of unconditional love. Rocket stars acclaimed Thai/Lao actor Thep Po-ngarm in the role of a damaged but humorous former CIA soldier who becomes a mentor to our young hero. Set in the rarely seen tribal mountains of Laos, The Rocket is gripping yet heart-warming cinema in the vein of Saloom Bombay, Central Station, The Motorcycle Diaries and the kids' story Slumdog Millionaire, with a touch of Little Miss Sunshine.
