"In the front of a used car parts shop, next to a junkyard in east Los Angeles, a little boy sits in his child-sized director’s chair, waiting for customers. Behind him is a meticulously constructed jumble of boxes that he has cut up and taped together, with handwritten stickers insisting, 'This is not a toy’. At the entrance is a cardboard sign with the words: 'Caine’s arcadE’; the capital 'E’ only added later, when he realised his omission.
"So starts a charming 11-minute film about nine-year-old Caine Monroy, who spent his summer holiday last year building a miniature games arcade made out of cardboard boxes in his father’s shop. Caine has been going to work with his father, George, 52, since he was four. His mother is a full-time waitress, and the Monroys, who are separated but live together, cannot afford child care during the holidays. While his father works in the back office, Caine makes his own fun out front."
