    • Synopsis
    • John and the Wood Elf is the first in a series of Feature Films, games and television series about a little five year old boy named John. His father was shot and died in the war, and now he's spending a lot of time at his grandparents farm. He helps out on the farm as much as he can, and one day, in a secret room inside the barn, he finds the Wood Elf who is so busy cleaning the barn that he's forgot to turn his invisibility on. John and the Wood Elf become close friends and they both help out on the farm, until one day the Wood Elf receives word that hunters are trespassing in the forest. They go out to investigate. Johns grandfather has strictly forbidden any hunting in his woods, but now they're here. Suddenly John and the Wood Elf are surrounded by hunters pointing at them with their weapons. Of course, they can't see the Wood Elf, but he is not about to abandon his friend. The hunters know they are doing something illegal, and so they decide to hold John captive until they are done with the hunting. The Wood Elf finds his friends in the forest, the animals, and together they set in motion a plan to save John and to save the forest.
