When Joey Pigza meets his dad, Carter, for the first time in years, he meets a grownup version of his old hyperactive self. During their summer visit together, Carter is eager to make up to his son for past wrongs. And Joey is willing to do whatever his dad says, even though -- in this high-energy sequel to the acclaimed Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key -- he fears it will do him more harm than good.
