The year is 1985. Rad Miracle is a shy, 13-year-old kid obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip-hop. During his family's annual summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, Rad makes a new best friend, experiences his first real crush, becomes the target of rich local bullies, and finds an unexpected mentor in his outcast next-door neighbor (Susan Sarandon). Writer/director Michael Tully (SEPTIEN) creates the ultimate love letter to 1980s coming-of-age comedy with this vivid cinematic time capsule. Hilarious in content and meticulously designed (by Nashville-based art director Bart Mangrum), Tully’s film relishes making an artifact of pop culture through synth-heavy suspense, Super 16 shades, and classic characters with original quirks. PING PONG SUMMER is a high five to the 13-year-old inside all of us who is hoping to come out on top.
