A big imagination and a family mystery combine for humour with heart.

Cooper believes that his grandfather — who has Alzheimer’s — is actually D. B. Cooper, the famous skyjacker who secured a small fortune and then vanished without a trace in 1971. Cooper sets out to prove his grandfather’s true identity and uncover one of the biggest secrets in modern history!

What begins as a distraction for a mystery-loving kid whose family is coping with the emotional and financial strain of caring for an aging relative becomes a way of proving himself at school and maybe even fixing his parents’ relationship troubles.
