“Tyler” is a hyper intelligent 9 year-old boy, who can outsmart anyone and has no shame on being who he is. On an ordinary lunch, he talks about his new crush, which causes an unexpected reaction. Junior came up with the idea for this film from moments of his own life, and got the motivation and inspiration to write it from the short film “In a heartbeat”, by Esteban Bravo and Beth David.
With an engaging and simple twist, “Tyler” is a comedy that might be controversial, but that for sure will make everyone who watches it rethink their sense of judgement, for it approaches the well-known “coming-out-story” in a very unique and different way, bringing up a big range of emotions to the audience, with a heart-warming-feel-good story. “Tyler” will shake audiences all over the world! From now on, no more sad plots to coming out stories!
Directed by Joel Junior (USA)
