Cody’s summer begins with a road trip. Accompanying his mother Kathy to his late aunts house. While his mother is busy cleaning, the almost nine-year-old has to pass the time on his own in the unfamiliar neighbourhood. His first encounter is with Del, a loveable 83-year-old grouch from next door.
So begins a very special friendship.
