A young and introspective boy, Mitch Musser (Andrew Lawrence) is socially awkward, living in the shadow of his teen football-star brother, Mark (Matthew Lawrence). Mitch is most at home up in the boughs of a huge tree, but, if his father, Henry (Robert Forster), succeeds in bringing a new factory to town, the massive oak may be cut down. Mitch is determined to save the tree, and the situation pits him against his dad, creating a significant problem for both the family and the community.
