Boys and young men learn to find strength in seeking support from others.


Learning from paternal supports strengthens the boys and young men in this collection of shorts. In one short, a long-distance romance needs a little help. In a wild scheme to build a catapult to launch himself across the ocean to his sweetheart, a young boy relies on the help of his enthusiastic grandpa. In another short, Gabriel has one goal: to sing in the local choir. When his father doesn't support this idea, what does it take to turn him around?
