IGF 2014 description:
Once Upon A Life is a heartwarming adventure that sees senior citizen Harry Dicky venture out of his retirement home in search of one last, final adventure.

After a gust of wind sweeps all of his precious memories out of his scrapbook and through the window, he embarks on an epic adventure that takes him from the retirement home to space, and all the way back again. Reminiscing throughout his journey about his beloved wife Marianna and his son Henry, Harry soon discovers that in trying to find solace in the past, he has stumbled upon the most exciting experience of his life; the two stories play out in parallel.
