Russell is a Native boy who yearns for a chance to shine. When he gets a role in the school play, he’s excited to share the news with his family. But his family is a lot! They’re loud and boisterous, and there are so many individual people and personalities that it’s difficult to get the family’s attention. That’s when Russell decides to keep his success to himself. But he soon realizes that being alone is… lonely. Ultimately, Russell learns that a lot of family means a lot of love and support.
