After losing her mother, a vexed 9 y.o. girl finds a dream machine hidden in her deaf father's workshop, but an unexpected friendship with a quirky boy becomes the real cure to her loneliness.


Charlotte Sometimes is a family/whimsical fantasy/dramedy feature mashup, set over the holidays and in the vein of "About Time", "Up", "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" and "The Family Man".

Charlotte's self-employed, toymaker father, Charlie, still mourns the loss of his wife. He is also deaf, and reclusive in turn. Charlotte Sometimes is 9 going on 30, often takes care of them both, and has herself become a solitary soul. When she finds the "Dreamweaver", Charlotte enters a storybook world- and at the center is an older version of herself. They discover some of life's biggest lessons while sharing adventures like skating in a snowglobe and battling a sea monster in their bathtub-turned- pirate ship. But a dream dreamt alone is only a dream.

Cue Oliver- the zany 8 y.o. boy who befriends Charlotte and penetrates her mature shell. She introduces him to the dream world, and he introduces her to all that the real world has to offer. They share comical adventures and trying times, becoming inseparable soulmates. When they are told Oliver and his family are moving, they plan to run away, but a hit-and-run stops everything and everyone in their tracks. As Christmas nears, Charlie takes Charlotte to a winter cabin to forget her pain and mend their fragile relationship. With Oliver's life in the balance, the Dreamweaver broken, and Charlie and Charlotte coming to a crossroad, this film leads the audience on a rollercoaster of emotion right to the very end.
