Based on Patrick Ness’s homonym novel, “A Monster Calls” is the emotional story of a boy with a childhood shadowed by his mother’s serious illness and the nighttime visits of a millenary monster.
Every night, Conor goes to bed with fear and hope for one night to have a quiet night’s sleep. Inevitably, however, immediately after midnight, he has the same nightmare: from the darkness of the night, the wind brings to the window a frightening monster. He will tell him three impressive stories, after which he will ask for something really important in return.
With this monster, Conor will discover compassion, love, and a few allies on which he can unconditionally rely, despite the difficulties he is trying to do.
