  • A 10-year-old genius embarks on a search for his real father, and gets more than a few unexpected surprises along the way in the quirky sophomore feature from FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN writer/director Dennis Lee. Henry James Hermin (Jason Spevack) began speaking in full sentences before he was a year old. And before he's even reached his teens, he's already in college. But the older Henry gets, the more he begins to wonder why he doesn't have a father. The son of a left-wing feminist named Patricia (Toni Collette), Henry is investigating his origins when he's kicked out of school for penning a controversial essay, and his grandfather Stan (Frank Moore) makes a shocking revelation: Henry is a test-tube baby. Upon learning that he has a half-sister named Audrey (Samantha Weinstein), and that she was conceived so that her father Dr. Slavkin O'Hara (Michael Sheen) could pen a best-seller titled "Born Gay or Made That Way?" the precocious boy decides to seek out his long-lost sibling. Later, as Henry and Audrey attempt to map out their family tree, the twisted roots make tracing their origins a formidable challenge, and a new kind of family begins to emerge.
