After his mother's death, 15-year-old Michael is sent to his aging grandfather. But during a road trip, the two develop a relationship they never had.

After the tragic death of his mother in a car accident, 15-year-old Michael King (Alex de la Rey) is sent to live with his grandfather Gerald (Andrew Buckland), whom he hardly knows. The emotional gulf between the traumatized boy and cantankerous old man is immense, but during a road trip across South Africa's Northern Cape to reunite Michael with his estranged father, a relationship of understanding and trust slowly emerges. After going their separate ways, the two reunite a year later, and through one final unexpected journey, the King men finally come to realize a true sense of love and belonging in each other. Based in part on director Tristan Holmes' relationship with his grandfather, THE FRAGILE KING is a powerful tale of heartbreak, healing and self-discovery.
