A family’s rationality snaps after trying to deal with their out of control teenager; they decide it’s time for Plan B... kill the little bastard... and get away with it.
They’re out there – families silently dealing with rotten teenagers. The Undertosh family decided that they were sick of walking on eggshells around Juice (Kevin), their juvenile delinquent teen, who has been to court more than an ambulance-chasing attorney.
Bert and Fern, along with Juice’s grand parents, and his younger siblings, take a family vote and decide that they’ve been tormented enough. Juice has to go. But they don’t want to put him on the street where he can wreak havoc on someone else.
They are going to take matters into their own hands regardless of what Dr. Robbell, the nutjob psychiatrist says.
The plan is to capture Juice and make it look like he ran away from home, minus his friends Wormie, Blowpipe and Edsel.
The family goes on a shopping spree. They buy thick rope, cattle prods, and rat poison. All part of the plan until someone mentions an autopsy. What if the cops think they murdered Juice?
That won’t do.
Bert and Grandpa convert the spare bedroom into a padded cell and wait for the right moment. When they finally get Juice into custody, they try a series of events that should have ended in Juice’s demise, but backfired on Fern.
Through all of the experiences with his now-crazed family, Juice sees the light of day. Slowly but surely, he reverts back to the thoughtful boy he used to be.
Gone are the grunge clothes, the pigsty bedroom, and the attitudes and traits he developed.
When his little brother comes home from school with a black eye from a gang trying to get him to join, Juice calls his friends. They meet up and confront the gang. Its head butting time — something Juice and his friends are good at from their own brand of slam dancing. The gang members limp away never to bother Kevin again.

The God Child is sort of like The Green Mile meets The Golden Child.
Logline: Colonel Bastrop suspects 7-year-old Deidre Lyons is God.
A government alert pings during an emergency C-section on Ruth Tovar Lyons. She knows she’s dying. Ruth begs the doctor to contact her sister Lily in New Mexico and not let the government take the baby.
Colonel Bastrop doesn’t think any special skills will show up for a couple of years.
Steve Plant, a former GI (30s), practices Qi Gong at a Myanmar monastery with a blind Tibetan master, along with Da-wa Wangdu (30s), Steve’s sidekick.
Steve finds no peace in the session and does the movements as payment for his sins.
Josh Corlander, scar-faced former military from Colonel Bastrop’s unit, sits in a bunker in Colorado. He watches activity surrounding his former commander.
One month later in the neonatal ICU, strange things begin to happen.
Nurse Lucy, with a large strawberry mark on her face and arm, picks Deidre up. The baby grabs Lucy’s finger. There is a soft glow no one notices. Nurse Minnie gasps. Lucy’s strawberry marks are gone.
Colonel Bastrop sends in Homeland Security and the FBI. They take the baby, confiscate all cell phones, scrub the hospital files. Lily Tovar is hidden amid the crowd outside the NICU window.
7 years later in a house in the woods, Susanne and Gordon, scientists who are responsible for Deidre’s care, record sessions with her about the universe, life, and death. Since her fourth birthday, no one has been able to physically touch her without getting shocked, or killed.
Josh sends his commandos to bring Deidre in. Susanne is killed. Deidre escapes to the forest, and Gordon is captured.
Steve and Da-wa are apprehended at the airport. Bastrop tells Steve to find the girl and bring her back. Steve and Da-wa meet Lily. She accompanies them.
They find Deidre in the woods with bears, wolves, a cougar, and a fox. Deidre brings Susanne back from the dead. They go to Colorado to rescue Gordon.
The government realizes there isn’t a fortress or bunker that could hold Deidre against her will. One thought from her could annihilate all life on the planet. And she’s only seven years old.
