By Bridgette Carpenter
Directed by Brandon Bruce

Sixteen years ago, Walter Griffin floated high above the earth in a lawn chair suspended by weather balloons. Now, he tinkers obsessively with failed inventions, trying to recapture his 15 minutes of fame while his disillusioned wife Helen supports the family and his teenage son Mikey languishes. But Walter’s dream affects them all—and as Helen’s and Mikey’s own hopes take wing, this family discovers that chasing a dream can leave you up in the air—where things aren’t always what they seem.
