Taking place in summer 1987, the story follows an uptight recent college grad who is forced to take a degrading minimum-wage job at the local amusement park when he realizes he can’t afford his dream European tour.

The experience helps him to loosen up a bit as he finds first love, forms new friendships and emerges with a newfound sense of maturity just in time to enter the real world in the fall.

Greg Mottola (“Superbad”) will direct, shooting begins this Fall in Pittsburgh.
