This lighthearted coming-of-age comedy follows one awkward teenager’s path through adolescence, showcasing the unique and unconventional assistance he receives along the way.

Nate Skoog (Jon Heder, Napoleon Dynamite), an eccentric 30-year-old, finds himself living with his mother and stuck in a mundane job in a mailroom. Nate’s life takes an unexpected twist when his boss tasks him to pick up Oswalt, his son, from school. When he discovers Oswalt is the subject of relentless bullying at school, Nate assembles a team of misfits to ensure Oswalt’s safety, forming an unconventional security detail. Their journey takes an unexpected turn when they discover that the network of bullies targeting Oswalt wields more power and influence than they initially thought.
