After the death of their father, an F16-pilot, eight-year old Stan uses fantasy as his main coping mechanism, whilst his sister Emma handles the situation completely differently. The day Stan and his family are about to move to a new place, Stan thinks he shot down a plane. Frightened but with confident spirit, he sets out into the woods to find the crashed device.
Maverick explores the powers of childlike fantasy and a vivid imaginations. Because when reality is too complex to understand, imagination can help to make sense of it all.
