Film Synopsis:

The year is 1982. Lightsabers, feathered doo's and Hall and Oats reign. New neighborhoods are going up everywhere. Ernest is the newest of the new kids — just moved in and looking to find his place. And playing the role of the evil Lord Vader (heavy breathing and all) seems like as a good a place to start as any. Follow Ernest as he rises to the challenges of being a kid — making friends, avoiding bullies, adjusting to mom's (CELEB) new full-time job, and his ultimate quest… to capture the flag. Along the way, Ernest discovers that bad guys never do win, and that the dark side really isn't his calling.
