It's summer 1981, and Ernest Terry, like most boys his age, is obsessing over George Lucas's Star Wars saga. In the woods outside Ernest's neighborhood, capture-the-flag contests escalate into sprawling Jedi battles, with bright yellow Wiffle ball bats substituting for light sabers. But when a bully snaps Ernest's already-damaged weapon in half, our hero and his friends accept a mission: Follow a nearby Stream to the town mall, buy a new bat and return home before their parents realize they're missing. Awkward pre-teen characters wrestle with small crushes, big imaginations and equivalent coming-of-age obstacles on a lazy summer afternoon. Directed by Estlin Feigley.
