Get The Hell On/Off

A mother's dim wit, a child's mischievous behavior, and a father's blasé attitude on child rearing clash in a harrowing experience that has the mother close to a nervous breakdown.

Johnny uses the word 'hell' too often for his mother's liking. Dad sits next to Mom on the couch nonchalantly reading the paper. Mom tries to curb Johnny’s mouthy enthusiasm but he just ignores her while he peddles his go-cart and picks up his imaginary friends at a make-believe bus stop in the family living room. He's not the friendliest of wagon masters but he’s just a kid, right? Well, in the battle of wills, Mom’s no match for this determined eight-year-old wannabe-bus-driver who doesn’t take any crap from anyone. Mom, if she’s not careful, may lose more than just her patience.
