Half Pint is the dramatic story of a young boy named Jim who cares nothing about history who is on a rainy day trip to a WW2 museum with his Mother and sister. Sneaking off to be on his own and play his video game, he suddenly finds himself thrown back in time to Normandy in the early morning hours of the 6th of June 1944. This young Half Pint is picked up by four Airborne soldiers (Ace, Sarge, Sparks & Joker) who take him along on their mission as forward observers hiding in a windmill near Carentan, France. When Jim gets back to the present, he wants to talk with grandpa to learn about the contributions of our greatest generation. The goal of this film is not to teach children history but instead to motivate them to talk to the generations that made it. The producers hope to give them an understanding that history is not a famous date when a famous person made a famous speech and the world changed. History is made of the contributions of every person that chooses to make a difference (and those that choose not to). History is the sum of the many millions of choices made by individuals. If our youngest generation can realize that they are making history every day in some small way, and that all those small ways can add up to something big. If they can understand that as they grow into adulthood, they will be able to make a contribution to both history and our democracy in those many millions of small ways that add up to something big. Every positive choice and action has an impact.
