Donald, a champion football player on the Green Bay Packers is a new dad! He is tired, frightened, frazzled, and desperate to survive the night with a crying baby who refuses to sleep. As the night wears on, his younger self, Quickie, comes to his rescue! Together, they journey through childhood memories, sharing stories inspired by Quickie’s life to soothe his new son and help them all rediscover how to dream big!
