MOPA is proud to present the second annual Coming of Age Film Festival, which focuses on promoting and reinforcing positive images on the subject of aging.

About - An aging airport janitor who is mistaken for an airline pilot by a group of poor neighborhood children weaves fantastical stories to offer hope for a sad, and sometimes unchangeable, reality.
