A basic film about a self-important father with unrealistic expectations for his 8-year old son. At the end, the father lightens up, the son grows up and the parents grow understand each other better. There are a few unexpected topics that were touched upon worthy of note: friendship with the black son of a garbage man; playing with guns; and the patriarchy.
