Logline: A young boy wrestles with his imagination as he attempts to reconnect with his estranged father and his new family.
A half-day of middle school is meant to be a day where kids have a few hours of innocent freedom in the moments before their parents get home, but this occasion is met with a different type of anticipation.
Set in the early 2000s, Dom hasn’t seen his father since his parents’ divorce six years ago. Yet, his Dad remarried, recently moved back to town, and has arranged for his son to start spending the weekends with him – but Dom’s first reintroduction is actually with his stepbrother, Kyle, after they get out of school.
On their way home together, Kyle and Dom discover their shared admiration for collectible cards, sports, and video games – despite coming from different worlds. However, their bond in boyhood slowly becomes overshadowed by Dom’s resentment
towards the prospect of his new family, namely because he’s learning about his Dad through Kyle, an experience that he has missed out on.
