Description: The highlight of Chuck Manetta's life was 50 years ago in Korea. Now retired and living in his son Paul's house, Chuck is given a choice: baby sit his granddaughter Jenny every day after school or waste away in a retirement home. Jenny, recently promoted to junior varsity, is as displeased as Chuck with this arrangement, until she discovers the old soldier to be the soccer coach her father isn't. Chuck hardens the girl, binding her to him. Meanwhile, Paul and his wife Ellen are splitting up. Paul's insubordinate students and Ellen's thieving clerk are fraying their nerves, multiplying the tension in the house and driving Jenny even further toward Chuck. But, if Chuck finally gets what he wants, will he know what to do with it?
