From acclaimed writer/director Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Eleven), comes a heart-warming portrait of 12-year-old Aaron Kurlander, who uses his wit and fearless sense of adventure to survive in Depression-era St. Louis. In his fantasies, Aaron is an advisor to pilot Charles Lindbergh, but his fortunes are actually in rapid descent. He remains undaunted, devising ill-fated money-making schemes, and inventing glamorous identities for his parents. But things take a dive as his family begins to fall apart. Left alone, he begins the practical business of staying alive, putting his family back together, and forging his own identity as “King of the Hill”. This rarest of gems that celebrates the triumph of a young man whose spirit, love, and will to survive are far stronger than any obstacle fate can throw into his path.
