A touching tale about life, families and the extraordinary power of a child's faith, STOLEN SUMMER chronicles the friendship of Pete O'Malley (Adi Stein) and Danny Jacobsen (Mike Weinberg) - two friends on a quest to change the world - aged 8. Most third graders spend their summer playing baseball and hanging out at the pool. But when Pete's Catholic school teacher warns him to clean up his rambunctious act or risk the wrath of his maker, he decides to embark on a divine mission to do good in his Chicago community and prove his worthiness for entry to heaven. His unlikely partner is Danny, a 7 year-old Jewish boy he meets along the way. In one unforgettable summer, these two boys are about to embark on an adventure that will teach them, and everyone around them, the true meaning of hope and friendship.
STOLEN SUMMER marks the feature film debut of Chicago native Peter Jones and is produced by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Chris Moore.
