The 2:11 Home

Our Story...

A heartwarming and poignant story, The 2:11 Home is the story of 13 year old Daniel O'Malley.  A young man who loves baseball but hates the gift he just received; a ragged, worn-out old glove from his grandfather. 


Focused on the embarrassment and ridicule he'll receive from his friends, his frustrations at the unfairness of life are about to explode.

Set in a bustling train station at the busiest time of year, Daniel begins to learn lessons about what's really important in life from an unlikely duo; a retired union worker and a soon to be retired Navy Chief Petty Officer.  

The question is, will he learn the true lesson about giving before it's too late?

After all, grandfathers don't live forever...

Based on the original screenplay entitled "The Christmas Express" by Paul Morin.

Adapted by Jim Huggins.


Our key locations (a large train station and the galley of a US Navy Destroyer) have been found and secured!  Now for domestic home settings and suburban neighborhoods...
