The Film is Based on the Comic Strip Series by Winsor McCay

The official synopsis of the film reads, “Eleven-year-old Nemo has had a magical childhood, tending a lighthouse with her father on a tiny island in the Pacific Northwest. But when her dad’s boat is lost in a storm, she’s sent to live with her emotionally distant uncle. Everything she knows and loves is ripped away from her, and Nemo’s lost and alone.”
“Then a strange visitor comes to her in her sleep—Flip, her dad’s old partner in crime, an outlaw who’s discovered a way to break into other people’s dreams! Together they set out to find a magic pearl that can give Nemo the thing she wants most— a chance to see her dad again. They travel through the astonishing world of dreams in an adventure filled with danger,” it reads further.
