‘Bartek & the Duke’ is the story of an eight-year-old refugee lost in a strange and eccentric land. Soon after they are smuggled into England by a nefarious gang of people traffickers, Bartek gets separated from his mother. Alone, his fears and imagination running wild, he discovers a castle on the other side of a great wood. There he encounters a cantankerous, reclusive old Duke – a man lost in his own fears, haunted by childhood memories…
In the grand rooms and grounds of the Duke’s castle, this odd couple forge an unlikely friendship that will be their salvation. Their story is an offbeat family comedy, a modern fairytale full of heart, magic, and adventure.
