Recently widowed Kevin Hedges juggles a lot in his life: two kids, overdrawn credit cards, a pair of dysfunctional sisters, and a chronically defective car. As holiday season descends upon the Hedge household, his dreams of becoming a successful children’s book author feel farther off than ever. Inspired by his two daughter’s support, he eagerly enters his story into a contest, one last push for a big break. This funny, heartwarming feature touches on the intricacies of family, possibilities of imagination, and believing in yourself when world does not. Discussion with director Damian Lahey, editor Craig Moorhead, and actress Celia Dusinberre
