WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Nate Foster (Wood) is a 13-year-old with dreams of making it big on Broadway, but is constantly overlooked at school where he fails to land any lead parts. Nate and his best friend Libby (Brooks) decide to sneak away to New York in order to fulfil their dreams, but a chance encounter with Nate’s estranged aunt Heidi (Kurdrow) turns their plan upside-down…
