Isaiah has been counting the sleeps to his eighth birthday party and it is finally here.  But, Isaiah is going to get a present he didn’t ask for — he’s gong to meet his biological father. When Isaiah's mother Karen suddenly revokes Kevin’s invitation, he decides to infiltrate the party, disguised as a clown.

 

What starts as a whimsical birthday party, quickly escalates into the rehashing of a failed relationship and the beginning of a journey of personal identity when Isaiah is confronted with the father he never knew, and discovers a mixed racial identity he has never been forced to acknowledge.
