Maximilian Glick is an ordinary Jewish kid in a 1950's small town in Manitoba, Canada. Unfortunately, he is also saddled with overbearing parents, who are intent on railroading his life to meet their expectations of him.

Together, the two must find a way to fulfill their dreams and their own identities in a world that seems dead set against them doing that.
