Guy Starling, a middle aged man who, after 45 years, suddenly meets up with his imaginary childhood friend, Hennikay. It's the biggest day in his career and he is on the brink of closing the biggest deal yet but, when Guy strides into his office at Solutify Technology, a software house that develops games for grown-ups to spend their time playing on their phones, he is confronted with an 11 year old boy playing keepy-uppies. And to make matters worse, no one else can see or hear him because he is Hennikay, Guy's imaginary friend from his lonely childhood.

A warm, funny look at childhood, adulthood and some of the follies of modern life.
