Albert loves to tell stories of his exploits during World War II and after. His great-grandson Bryan listens politely, but he’s not quite sure things really happened that way! And when Albert, who is about to turn 100, spins a fantastical tale about Her Majesty The Queen coming to visit, the whole family is naturally skeptical. A heartwarming comedy about family and honor.
