  • Life sends Al fountain a sprite by the name of "The Kid" to help him take a break from his life. Al gets away long enough to appreciate the things he has. Lightweight, unlikely, fun story. Low-budget film that might make you think about the good things in your own life, or maybe just make you wish you could duck out of life for a few days. Either way, it should make you feel that it's ok to be Al.
