Synopsis

A coming-of-age tale set in New England during the summer of 1960 and based on the book by Stephen King. When 11-year-old Bobby Garfield (Anton Yelchin) makes friends with Ted Brautigan (Anthony Hopkins), the old man who lives in the apartment upstairs, he gets a glimpse of a world of intrigue and adventure he never dreamed could exist so close to home. Ted asks for help in eluding the 'low men', the mysterious agents who he claims are trying to capture him, and Bobby eagerly agrees to do what he can. But as the summer wears on, and after some close encounters with the 'low men', cruelty and misunderstanding begin to conspire against Ted and his capture looks more and more certain.
