One boy with a dream that becomes a harsh reality? Everyone encounters dreams or goals in their life, but some never get to complete them. This young hero has a dream of being a pilot for the rebellion, but he gets more than he bargained for.

The hero’s journey describes the pattern of a story that is seen in myths, drama, fantasy and others. It includes specific archetypes that create that pattern .
