Summary: Max Jordan, a hot-shot talent agent from Akron Ohio, is ready to hit the big time by establishing his own agency in LA. Because he is consumed with his desire to succeed, Max has grown into a distant, self-involved man.

In an effort to right his wrong, Max decides to aid in the boy’s recovery. A paternal bond forms between Max and the boy, who is an orphan. Through this experience, Max rediscovers the aspects of life that truly matter.
