Synopsis

Fourteen-year-old Robbie wants to keep being a kid, but there are a couple of problems. One is his father, who has missed most of Robbie's childhood and always manages to disappoint him in the end when he is around. The other is Robbie's own baby son, who he avoids taking any responsibility for until he suddenly decides he knows best how to look after the kid.
