(mbc.net) Marcus Brewer (Nicholas Hoult) is twelve and living with his chronically depressed single mom Fiona (Toni Collette), He never misses an occasion to please and make his mom laugh or smile.

Despite the fact that he is having his own share of problems at school, being perceived as the weird apple, because of his habit of singing and talking to himself, uncontrollably.

On the other hand, is Will Freeman (Hugh Grant), a selfish eternal ladies man and slacker, living off the fortune of his dad and never had to work a day. When he decides that the best way to satisfy his needs is to frequent single moms, and that’s how Marcus and Fiona enter his life. His life will never be the same, from now on.
