What parent has not wondered what was going on in the head of his pre-teen daughter? The writer and director Peter Docter has taken on the question and answers in motion pictures. Inside Out , the next Pixar movie, tells the story of Riley, a girl of 11 years who moved with his family in a small Midwestern town in the frenzy of San Francisco. Surrounded by new classmates, she is overwhelmed by a flood of emotions: Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness, which materialize in practice in his head.
