‘Don´t you wanna invite any young people, too? – Not really…’

Cody’s summer begins with a road trip. Accompanying his mother Kathy, he travels to the house where his late aunt used to live. While Kathy is busy cleaning out the place, the almost nine-year-old has to pass the time on his own in the unfamiliar neighbourhood. The boy’s first encounter with old Del from next door marks the start of a special friendship. The loveable 83-year-old grouch has a whole life to look back on. Del’s companionship causes Cody to blossom: he begins to open himself to the outside world and set aside his fears. In return, he gives the widowed veteran solace and reminds him how much fun life can be. Full of warm humour and casual levity, their friendship leaves no aspect of life untouched. In the end, a new journey awaits.

Running Time 1hr 23mins
