From director Dave Boyle comes a funny tale about Jimmy, an eccentric, divorced middle-aged man who lives with his sister Aiko and brother-in-law Tak, and shares a bunk bed with his 10-year-old nephew Bob. Jimmy is in search of a soulmate. The hilarious trials and tribulations of Jimmy’s attempts to woo Tak’s niece, beautiful graduate student Ramona (Lynn Chen, Saving Face) from his best friend Tim (James Kyson Lee of NBC’s “Heroes”) ends up in some laugh-out-loud situations. But the true discovery is in nephew Bob, who holds a secret talent that may help save Jimmy and the rest of the family.
Garbage collector Sam doesn’t have much going for him. His one bright spot is his beloved chihuahua, Precious…until out of a magical flower pops out a four-inch tall woman.
