World War II paratrooper Private Frank Hutchins lands in enemy territory: a modern-day suburban driveway. He is confronted by Barrie, a freeloader still living with his parents. Barrie is convinced his uninvited guest is proof of time travel while Hutchins realizes that contacting his squad might be a challenge, in this cleverly written and astutely acted comedy.
