Just Landed a Major Supporting Role
A heartwarming and poignant award-winning script, The 211 Home is the story of 13 year old Daniel O'Malley. A young teenager who loves baseball but hates the gift he just received; a ragged, worn-out old glove from his grandfather.
Afraid of the embarrassment and ridicule he knows he'll receive from his friends, his frustrations at the unfairness of life are about to explode.
Set in a busy commuter airport at the busiest time of year, Daniel begins to learn lessons about what's really important in life from an unlikely duo; a retired union worker and a soon to be retired Navy Chief Petty Officer.
The question is, will he learn the true lesson about giving before it's too late?
After all, grandfathers don't live forever...
Based the screenplay "The Christmas Express" by Paul Morin.
