A 12 year old NYC kid plans the ultimate Bar Mitzvah. However, those plans go awry when his parents reveal they are getting divorced and he has to move halfway across the country.

ARCHIE – A TEENAGER
Archie lives across the street from Evan and Patrice in Walkerton. Archie has Muscular Dystrophy, which in his case means that he’s been on crutches for about three years and will probably be in a wheelchair within the next three. He’s largely invisible at school, but he and Patrice have been friends for years, and she’s a little protective of him. He’s deep into nerd culture – comic books, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones – but his overwhelming obsession is with Kendra, the head cheerleader at the school about. The fact that Kendra wouldn’t be able to pick Archie out of a police lineup does not diminish his ardor. Character singing role.
