Morten Viks is a 10-year-old boy who longs to become a sea captain like his father. Dreaming of a distant sea journey, he builds a toy sailboat. One day, he is unexpectedly shrunken down to a size of an insect and becomes the captain of his boat. But sailing turns out to be more difficult than it seemed…
Morten whiles away his days in a tree-house by the sea, writing letters to his dad and hiding from his strict aunt Annabelle. He dreams of embarking on a great journey, filled with adventures, and exploring uncharted lands. One day, a zany magician arrives in town and sprinkles mysterious powder on Morten. The boy suddenly shrinks and finds himself on board of his toy sailboat. However, he isn’t the sole member of its crew: soon he will meet the Spider Queen and her entourage. Morten will need to find the courage and ability to save the boat from sinking and discover the way back to the real world. “Captain Morten & The Spider Queen” is an astounding animated film about the endless power of a child’s imagination.
