About the Film
It’s 1992, and Philip (Logan Miller) is eager to leave his small-town home to study music at NYU. The only problem: His controlling father, Frank (Jim Gaffigan), won’t allow it. When Philip sneaks away for spring break, he inadvertently discovers that Frank secretly has been maintaining a second family in another state! Finally having the upper hand with his dictatorial dad, Philip decides to blackmail him—with hilarious results—in Miranda Bailey’s comedy of errors.
