Overview
Three runaway kids hitchhike to California where the youngest of them wants to compete in a video game championship tournament. Gaming seems to be the only form of expression for young Jimmy Woods, who has become intensely introverted since the tragic death of his sister. Along the way his older brother and a new found friend try to piece together a way to help the boy with his depression. This late 80's cult classic narrative is one of the first films to dive into the still formative video game culture.
