Synopsis

Twelve-year-old Lio, an only child living with a single mom, is assigned a class project to describe his father’s birthplace. The only problem is he never knew his. Soon, Lio discovers that his dad was from a tiny, uninhabited lost island in the Southern Ocean, with a funny name: Sandwich. Determined to find his father, the boy sets out on the long and perilous journey to Sandwich Island.
