Manic man-child Seth lives in his own demented world where time is of the essence, his only friends are his stuffed animals, and the words of Michael Jordan inspire him to take all the shots he can which, for Seth, means impressing his father. An incredibly bizarre series of trials and errors ensue eventually leaving Seth feeling defeated before he makes one last attempt to win his father's love and approval.
