Conor's (Lewis MacDougall) parents are divorced. His father (Toby Kebbell) lives in Los Angeles with a new wife and child. Conor lives with his mother in England. His Mum (Felicity Jones) has cancer, leaving Conor to clean up and raise himself. He calls the monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) in his dreams. Conor is forced to move in with his grandmother (Sijourney Weaver) who he doesn't particularly care for. Conor's dream is about falling into a hole in the earth. It is a recurrent nightmare. Conor thinks the monster has come to heal his mother. The monster all along says he has come to heal Conor.
This is a must see movie. It delves into cancer like nothing else I have seen. It also deals with fantasy and nightmares.
