DANIEL N Daniel is a seven-year-old boy who loves to sleep. One day, something strange happens and he falls into a deep sleep from which it seems impossible to awaken him. W Daniel has a very special talent: every time he sleeps, he travels outside  his own body. After a strange event, however, Daniel gets trapped outside and is unable to wake up.
The Wide World will soon be available for the Ipad. Check out the project's facebook page and production blog for information about the plot and characters, and previews of what is to come.                Thank you for your visit!
The Wide World has an unconventional narrative structure, where the same story is told from two different points of view.  The first point of view, called NARROW, presents the world exactly as we know it. In this version of the story, everything happens for logical reasons. The second point of view, called WIDE, reveals a parallel world inhabited by subtle creatures that live among humans. The mere presence of those beings affects people’s lifes in various ways. It’s up to the reader to choose between NARROW or WIDE and get a different perception of the story according to that choice.

PLATO N Plato is the family’s watchdog. He spends most of the time lying on the grass in the garden, or barking at nothing. W Like all dogs, Plato can see the invisible creatures that live among humans. For that reason, he’s the only one able to see Daniel outside his body, and will be his best ally in the fight against the Vulture.

The metaphysical point of view, also known as WIDE, reveals a parallel world inhabited by subtle creatures that live among humans. The mere presence of those beings affects people’s lifes in various ways.
