The film begins as 7 yr old Zachary walks us through his daily routine. He shows us his room, the foster home, and talks us through, in a very adult way, the ins and outs of being a 'man'. "Everyman," he tells us, "must have one nice outfit". Simultaneously, a story unravels with an older man, though at this stage we do not know who this man is. His daily routine does, indeed, seem to reflect young Zach's daily routine. Could this be Zach as an adult? Or is it the man that will become Zach's foster Dad?
