The Sandman and the Lost Sand of Dreams


The Dreamworld is in peril when Habumar, dispenser of nightmares and all-around deviant, steals the Sand of Dreams. The benevolent Sandman sends his trusty sidekick, a sheep named Nepomuk, to the real world to fetch the fearless captain who will assist them in saving the day. However, Nepomuk accidentally recruits Miko, a sweet and timid little boy who happens to be playing dress-up. Miko transforms into an animated puppet and together they travel to the dream-scape to join forces with the Sandman. The trio then sets out on an epic adventure to save Dreamworld amidst a slew of zany characters. To succeed in helping defeat Habumar and his evil gang, Miko will have to learn to overcome his fears and shyness and embrace the power of dreams.

Dove Review

A little boy named Miko wants to be the captain of a great ship, but he is afraid of everything. Then the Sandman needs help to retrieve his dreamland sand from the evil Shiverman, master of nightmares and monsters. It is Miko who is brought from the real world into Dreamland to help save the day by the sleep sheep, Nepomuk.

This is a sleepy-time story that will encourage little ones who are afraid to face their fears and overcome the monsters in their dreams. It is charmingly entertaining with a foreign flare that teaches the importance of believing in yourself.

The Dove Family Approved Seal is awarded to this movie for all ages.
