A thanksgiving dinner does not go as expected when the child witnesses an argument between his religious mother, who believes God controls all the paths of life, and his scientist grandpa, who dedicated his whole life inventing time-travel.

It takes place in a single location with a fixed setup and has a lot of dialogues.

This delightful drama is one of the pet projects by a passionate writer and a filmmaking student trying to make an entry into this world. This is one of the short films to be used as a portfolio to find producers for future projects. The entire crew (some professional members) are volunteers who are all doing it solely for passion and to create a core team for future.

The director has also previously made a zero-budget short film where he spent months working on it and is now published on YouTube.

The owner of this listing has agreed to abide by local 'working with children' regulations. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
