The actual film begins here when Nate and Libby set off on their journey to accomplish their goals in the city of dreams. Here's the twist: neither of the young teens' parents joins them.

Nate appears to believe she is a big Broadway star, but she is simply a New Yorker trying to keep up with the city.

The film depicts several angles, but most significantly, it depicts the sense of dreams. Why it's more important than everything else in the world to choose and pursue your aspirations. It also stresses the need of putting yourself over others in your life. The movie's second perspective is on the interaction between siblings. First, you'll witness Nate's mother and her sister. What transpired between them caused them to be not able to be in contact with each other.  Also, Nate's relationship with his own brother, Anothy (Joshua Bassett), in which Nate always believes he has embarrassed his sibling. But, no matter what occurs amongst the siblings, they're all best pals who genuinely care about us.

The film will not bore you but definitely make you laugh, and giggle also will provide you with aim of accomplishing your dreams in the end.
