Description


Durante el equinoccio de otoño Ben y sus amigos deciden averiguar a dónde van todas esas lámparas de papel que cada año la gente de su pueblo libera en la corriente del río. ¿Se convertirán en estrellas, como dice la vieja canción que han escuchado desde pequeños? ¿Terminarán en una profunda cueva, en el mar? ¿O simplemente se hundirán en algún punto de la corriente para nunca volver a emerger? Sea lo que sea, quieren saberlo. Ben y su inesperado compañero, Nathaniel, se encuentran con un gran oso que lleva a cuestas una enorme canasta. Al descubrir que tienen el mismo destino, deciden viajar juntos, aunque sea sólo una parte del camino. Se pierden, escapan de una bruja, cruzan cuevas submarinas con el cielo nocturno reflejado en el techo, consiguen atravesar una tormenta y se cruzan con una caravana resplandeciente que acude a una celebración… ¡Todo para descubrir el destino de un montón de lamparitas!
 
It's the night of the annual Autumn Equinox Festival, when the town gathers to float paper lanterns down the river. Legend has it that after drifting out of sight, they'll soar off to the Milky Way and turn into brilliant stars, but could that actually be true? This year, Ben and his classmates are determined to find out where those lanterns really go, and to ensure success in their mission, they've made a pact with two simple rules: No one turns for home. No one looks back. The plan is to follow the river on their bikes for as long as it takes to learn the truth, but it isn't long before the pact is broken by all except for Ben, and (much to Ben's disappointment) Nathaniel, the one kid who just doesn't seem to fit in. Together, Nathaniel and Ben will travel farther than anyone has ever gone, down a winding road full of magic, wonder, and unexpected friendship.
