Peter is a little person, who's always believed he could fly like the birds his dwarfish body most closely resembles. An artist and creator, Peter is hired to paint the town’s water tower, a place he comes to see as his very own perch from which to lift off.

Sun is a talented cage fighter. He loves the energy and excitement of the fight, but finds inflicting harm on others more unbearable than simply absorbing the pain himself. He continues to lose match after match until he reconnects one fateful afternoon with Peter, whose own, somewhat parallel journey leads him in an unexpected direction.

A tale of true friendship and taking flight, Banana Season is a glimpse into two ordinary souls at the point their lives when they flower or fade.  -CM
