Young Luke is working on a very special project in his backyard: he has devised a way to send a message to his grandma in heaven. His older sister is spooked by the growing darkness outside and wants him in the house immediately, and on top of that, the mischievous neighbors climb the fence and sneak into his yard. But nothing will deter Luke from his task, and amid a growing storm of doubt, the evening sky may just reveal a surprise.
