Synopsis

All the boys in Luke's art class see things the same way - except for Luke. Luke has his own vision of the world, a wild, colorful, crazy vision, that upsets his art teacher and confuses the other boys. When he just can't face one more difficult day at school, Luke discovers a whole "palace" filled with wild, colorful, crazy pieces of art. It's a whole building, a whold world, where Luke finally feels at home. And knowing about this place, finding it, makes the rest of the world change for him.
