Nine-year-old Caine has always dreamed of running his own arcade, and when he finds himself stuck working at his father’s auto parts store for the summer vacation, he finally makes that dream a reality by designing a series of elaborate and functional cardboard game cabinets. Though customers are few and far between, Caine’s spirit and self-determination never waver; and when one customer decides to give Caine’s arcade the spotlight it deserves, the whole community—and, eventually, the whole world—comes to recognize his extraordinary accomplishment.
