In this sequel to TIFF Kids 2016 selection Mr. Twister on Stage, the lovable oddball schoolteacher and his class experience numerous pratfalls as they aim to compete in an upcoming soccer tournament — despite none of them (including Mr. Twister) having any experience on the field!
Please note: The screening on April 18 will be presented in a sensory-friendly (lights up, sound down) environment.
Mr. Twister’s students are back at it in the follow-up to Mr. Twister on Stage (TIFF Kids 2016). While developing unique ideas for a large project, Principal Dreus steps in and decides that the class is going to participate in an upcoming soccer tournament. Despite having no previous soccer knowledge, the students and Mr. Twister work together to step up to the challenge. Mr. Twister has to suddenly step away from his coaching responsibilities when his mother is injured. As the students’ success on the field starts to slip, they develop a plan to get their favourite teacher/coach back in action before the season is over — by helping to get his mother home from the hospital.
