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 her affection, she 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? A bittersweet tale of modern family politics written and directed by Renuka Jeyapalan. Principal cast: Samantha Weinstein, Kris Holden-Ried and Patricia Fagan.
