Show Info

By Michael Mejias
Directed by Gregory Simmons
With Malik Ali, Sean Carvajal, Talia Marrero, Alejandro Rodriguez, Rodney Roldan and Andrew Schoomaker

1982 - South Bronx, USA. Charlie Rosa embarks on a summer of baseball, bullies, boarding school and... gulp, gulp... girls. 

When Charlie receives a letter, his life becomes about big secrets, little lies, and humongous pressure. Suddenly, it's hard just being fourteen. 

Luckily, he has one hell of an imaginary friend.
