Jack decides to reset his life after he left college without the girl he loved and ended up married to a girl he didn't. Trying to uncover what he lost in the journey from child to adult, Jack attempts to navigate the disconnect between how we're told life will go and the carelessness of the real world. A reflection on the idealism of youth and the discovery that what is important doesn't change as much over time as we think, The Toyland Tales shows how love always brings us closer to the edge.
