LOGLINE: With one last blowout performance, a passionate young theatre actress hopes—against all odds—to keep her youth theatre camp alive and breathing.


A struggling theatre camp fights to keep its doors open by hosting one more stellar event. Its manager, Abigail Rush, a young, bright, performing actress is hoping to lead the charge with this years students. Unfortunately, the only kids in attendance are a group of ragbag yahoos, with mediocre talent. Knowing that this camp is facing its last chance at greatness, Abby is forced to accept the help of her father, Hollywood’s bad-boy actor, John Rush. Being an absentee father in the past, John is eager to repay his debt to his daughter by helping her get the camp back on track. Abby, not thrilled with the idea of him being at the camp, let alone him wanting to help, is forced to accept his assistance. The father/daughter team starts off rough trying to establish who is in charge of what but the two quickly put their problems behind them in order to reach this motley crew of young actors. Through hard work, emotional intelligence, and plain fun John and Abby break through to each of the kids’ individual issues, helping them grow as both performers and people. Their work with the kids also helps their relationship heal. As the ensemble of performers ramps up for their big, camp-saving show, John is offered a major role and leaves Abby and the kids to continue without him. But this doesn’t last long as John chooses to finish what he started with the kids. The group gives a performance of a life-time. The audience is moved to tears. The parents of one of the kids enjoys what they see so much that they make a cash donation, covering the remaining debt on the camp. John and Abby are reunited as artists and as family. John decides he has grown out of the film business and would like to try his hand at theatre writing. The two remain at the camp, preparing for the future.
