Far beyond the borders of gloomy everyday stereotypes lies a magical world called Yourland. There the ravens act like the men, the building cranes walk like robots and monkeys are army generals. Riki has to enter this world to find the truth and save Yourland and his own world.

“Journey to Yourland tells the story of Riki, a ten-year-old boy, who dives into a big adventure, taking place in two different worlds: “Yourland” is a fantasy world, a place, where everything is possible and where dreams and crazy ideas come true, but also a site of cruel battles. The other world is Riki’s real world – cold, grey, and shrouded in difficult family problems. Time will show though that all the problems can be solved if we choose the right path. Yourland is not just a fantasy full of crazy inventions, giant robots, and magical creatures, it also shows the problems kids nowadays have to face. The journey through Yourland gives Riki an opportunity to encounter his own feelings, personified by other characters, and cope with them.” (P. Budinský)
