Directed By Kendall Goldberg
Run Time: 92 Mins

They’re not going to close Winky’s World if Jeff (Jon Heder) has anything to say about it! When word gets out about the impending sale of beloved, aging bowling alley, Winky’s World, slacker manager Jeff springs into action to save the day. Calling on the nostalgia of the good old days, when Winky’s World was in its
prime, Jeff manages to heroically rally everyone together to try and keep things afloat, but will his plan work or is it simply time to move on?
