A friend of mine is looking for help. He partially remembers a kid’s movie from around the 1980s to 1990s. He grew up in Michigan if that helps. He says it’s live action. The kid in the movie had awful parents. Some how the kid is whisked away to a fantasy land that had magic and wizards. He remembers something about the kid having a neverending bread or cracker, there was a bit about using a grass flute to find someone in a cave.
Does any of this sound familiar to you and can you tell me what movie it was?
