The New Kid, an animated adventure

In a futuristic tribute to Charlie Chaplin’s 1921 feature film THE KID, New York City has been flooded and split vertically into two distinct regions.

THE KID is a young artistic soul living with his mother Uptown, a boring, artless place of overprotective safety. When he runs away seeking adventure, he winds up in the mysterious and dangerous Downtown and encounters CHAPLIN, a robot with a human soul.

Together, the two embark on the adventure of a lifetime uncovering the secret mystery behind Chaplin, all while pursued by police, the Kid’s mother, and a colorful cast of modern circus performers.
