Ten-year-old Nicolas has never had nightmares. His secret? Every year on his birthday his mom makes him a magical costume that keeps bad dreams away. Nicolas keeps these prized disguises in a special trunk in his bedroom, and, naturally, when he goes to live with his Nana and Papa, he brings the trunk and all of his costumes with him. At his grandparents’ house, Nicolas, who has Down Syndrome, shares a bunk bed with his older cousin David, who isn’t too happy about his new roommate and refuses to let Nicolas play with him and his friends. Patient and loving, Nicolas shows nothing but kindness to David in return. One night, while David is sleeping, Nicolas sees a purple-eyed monster that feeds on nightmares coming for his cousin. Without bad dreams of his own, Nicolas is immune to the monster and springs into action to defend David. In the same moment, Nicolas’ costume trunk opens, transporting him to a mystical kingdom and in trouble at the hands of a mysterious wizard. A COSTUME FOR NICOLAS is an uplifting family-friendly adventure in which Nicolas will battle pirates, outlaws, dragons, and this mysterious wizard with love and kindness to save the magical “Kingdom in the Trunk.” (Dubbed in English) — G.S.
