“Kaytek the Wizard” is a film about a little boy’s dreams coming true. Kaytek becomes a magician, able to enchant everything and everyone. Magic is the escape of a boy who cannot cope with the harsh reality. At the same time, he discovers that the success and fame he gains through magic do not solve his most basic needs – to be loved, understood, accepted, to have friends and a loving family that sees and accepts him as he is. By the end of the story, Kajtek learns to give up his witchcraft. At the same time, the dreams allow him to mature internally and teach him to relate to people through love, compassion and empathy.
