Every year, Lenny gets two weeks with his sons Sage and Frey. With no real parenting instincts, Lenny is determined to instead be best friend to the boys. But the responsibility soon becomes too much for him, and Lenny does his best to foist them onto neighbours and even strangers as the trio attempts to survive the fortnight together.
“[Ronald] Bronstein’s performance is crucial. It’s difficult to make a manic character plausible, but he does. – Roger Ebert
