Rocket Fuel

In the middle of a small town on a hot July day, three young kids clean up the morning after a party hosted by their distant parents. They collect a spattering of cans and bottles in an old wagon nicknamed “The Rocket”, and set off to cash in their empties for ice cream. Nora, the oldest at 12, tries to guide her siblings on the smartest path to victory when they discover their regular route is compromised.

The feature film based on the short is currently in development.
