Divorced and alone, Lenny is the father of two young boys he gets to see a couple of weeks a year. He cherishes these days with the kids, being both stern parent and lovable buddy, inventing myths and somehow living them, all while working overtime in the big city. When the going gets tough, Lenny uses some unusual, perhaps even hazardous, techniques to keep the kids safe from the world.

The nutbar main character of this docudrama - the idiotic father with a death wish for his kids - should have been called-up on charges for child-neglect... if what his real-life sons (the authors of this movie) suggest - actually happened to them - throughout this film! I mean... who does all these things to his children - if not some psychopathic loser? Yeah... I know... it's New York... So what? 'Child abuse' is - CHILD ABUSE - where ever it festers! And while I think it's commendable for his adult kids to kinda work-out their childhood angst, thru' the making of this film, it still doesn't excuse what emotional termoil and suffering their stupid father put them thru' when they were little! Oh... as for the style and technical merits of the movie - I found it all-over-the-place and pedantic... leaving me to wonder once again: Just who the hell is in charge of these dime-a-dozen film festivals that give out awards to mediocre flicks like this - passing them onto unsuspecting audiences as films worthy of any merit? Gawd awful!!!

Crazy, but ultimately enjoyable indie film about the ultimate free-range dad.
