To celebrate his eleventh birthday, a boy goes with his mother to the local hardware store in Tupelo, Mississippi to buy his present. Although he’s been saving for a bike, a .22 rifle catches his eye. His mother is adamantly against the gun, so the helpful store clerk offers an alternative. Won Best International Short Film at the 2015 Tupelo Film Festival among other awards.
