Family Movie Night: My Grandpa Detective

Friday, April 7th  |  7:00PM  |  Length of Movie: 1 Hour, 53 Minues  |  Free

After his father stormed out of his grandfather’s house and out of his life, young Bobby was raised by his grandparents. Now grown, Detective Robert Whitmore is in for a surprise when he is assigned a new partner – his grandfather, whom he still blames for the loss of his father. Due to a clerical error Grandpa, a retired detective, has been forced out of retirement after twenty years. As the two generations try to solve an increasingly difficult case of the biggest, baddest, most brazen thief the department has ever seen, Whitmore is forced to deal not only with Grandpa, but with his feelings of bitterness and his own standing before God. My Grandpa Detective is a humorous story with a serious message of family and forgiveness.

Movie produced by the Lammiman family - owner of Movie Makers. (www.moviemakers.ca) Visit their table in the Exhibit Hall.
