CREATURE HE is the story of a secluded tribe of girls which becomes threatened when one of its members discovers a dangerous creature called “He” in the woods beyond their realm. This tribe of young women, raised in total isolation in the wilderness, are taught by their Elders to believe in a mythical creature named “HE” that went extinct before they were born. Through a series of myths and fables about the outside world, the Elders control the tribe through fear, preventing the girls from ever leaving the confines of their village. When one of the tribe’s members- “Ro”, begins to question the teachings, an unstoppable seed of curiosity is planted in her mind, which eventually lures her out into the world beyond the boundary into the realm of men.
KEIRA AND THE TIME KEY: Keira and her grandmother, Connie, used to be best friends. That is, until Connie got sick and stopped remembering who Keira was. Now her grandmother is trapped in a perpetual loop, repeating things that don’t make sense, hopelessly lost in a distant past. When Keira uncovers her grandmother’s scientific research in the attic, she realizes that Connie had once been at the forefront of a magnificent discovery: Her research had unlocked the secret to time, opening up a supernatural portal to the past! Now, Keira must use this portal to travel back in time and continue her grandmother’s research. With the help of her trusty pup, Minute, a talking bird, Tony, and her cousins Selda and Jake, Keira puts together clues to unlock forgotten mysteries to set right the problems of the past.
