The beginning of the movie shows a scene where a boy goes out to play, only to return home and find that time has lapsed by more than 17 years.

It might have something to do with time travel.

Which movie is this?

Sounds similar to Flight Of The Navigator but that was only 8 years. – LeopardSkinPillBoxHat Aug 16 '13 at 5:58

The boy goes out to find his brother. Trips falling into a ravine and wakes up later. He returns home to find 8 years has past. Watch it to see why. Great movie. – ThinkingMedia Aug 16 '13 at 13:44

I think you are talking about the movie "Flight of the Navigator":

It involves space travel at light speed and therefore time travel.

Although only 8 years are passed in this movie when he returns.
