Abstract: The Narcoleptic Boy takes its inspiration from a chronic sleep disorder named narcolepsy. A person with such condition is known to experience extreme fatigue during daytime, and according to dictionary.com - he or she may fall into deep sleep frequently. The main characters of this story are the protagonist boy - Pumpkin, the narcoleptic boy who always fall asleep at the wrong time, and his loyal companion dog Banana who is always watching over him during his 'walk' in the city. It is a heartwarming tale of friendship. In the first half of the movie, the boy keeps being saved by the dog. Whereas at the climax, the tables are turned - it is the boy's turn to rescue the dog. The theme chosen in this project is not in any way intended to make fun of people with narcolepsy. Rather, it is meant to highlight the audience's attention to the disease - and to lightheartedly spark discussions on how it could affect its patients' lives.
