Synopsis
Little Bruce can’t stand his school’s strict educational system. With a warrior’s heart and an imaginary sensei (master of martial arts) at his side, he tries to challenge the unjust rules by turning into Stero, a little hero who honours his true self and his rebellious spirit. A subtle and amusing tribute to the power of children’s imagination.
