Dreamy, 10-year-old Morten whiles away his days building his toy ship and trying to avoid the ire of his reluctant guardian: Mean spinster, Anna. It goes some way to distracting him from missing his Father, Captain Viks, who is away at sea. One day Morten hopes to be a Captain, just like him.
After a chance meeting with the inept magician Senór Cucaracha, 8-year-old Morten is magically shrunken down to the size of an insect and trapped aboard the deck of his own toy-ship! But with a wicked Spider Queen and Scorpion Pirate already aboard, being Captain is going to be anything but child’s play!
"Morten" features the voice talent of Brendan Gleeson, Ciarán Hinds, Pauline McLynn, Tommy Tiernan, Michael McElhatton, Jason Byrne, Neil Delamere and introduces Cian O'Dowd and Susie Power as Morten and his friend Eliza.
