A battle of wills develops between nine-year-old Josephine and her mother's new boyfriend -- a "lowly" bartender. No longer the sole object of mom's affection, Josephine challenges this new interloper to a winner take all competition. He may be man enough for her mother, but is he man enough to take care of them both? This bittersweet tale of modern family politics is written and directed by Renuka Jeyapalan. Principal cast: Samantha Weinstein, Kris Holden-Ried and Patricia Fagan.
