Refreshments will be served.
A young boy’s hopes and an unusual bicycle bring about magical results. Life is an adventure for ten-year-old Darius Frobisher. His eccentric father Rudy sells insurance four days a week. The other three days he goes on exotic journeys. But when his father flies off in a hot air balloon and doesn’t come back, Darius’s happy, carefree life suddenly comes to an end. He is sent to live with his notoriously nasty Aunt Ida, where he has to sleep alone in a cold, damp basement and dodge the horrible teenage boy next door. Darius sees a ray of hope when he finds a rusty old bicycle in the basement and begins to repair it in secret.
