Synopsis:

As the old saying goes: “sometimes you just want to see balls!” This couldn’t be more true for writer-director Jakob Skrzypa, who worked tirelessly along with producers Alex Forman and Milos Savic to bring this Pixar-inspired period piece to life.

In the style of the great Mel Brooks, this absurd comedy is set within a very realistic world. Viewers will be transported from the 1930s through to the 1970s as they accompany our lead through war, marriage, birth, and beyond!
