A father dies and returns as a tiny cavalier stuck in a bottle on his son's fireplace mantle. The son is a work-from-home computer programmer living in a tiny NY apartment. The tiny father spends his days writing his memoirs and generally annoying his son with speaking aloud his idealistic and self-serving auto-biography. The father occasionally drinks too much and flails about his bottle in a depressed stupor, cursing his fate. In order to calm his father down, the son fills his bathtub with water and gently rocks the bottle until his father falls asleep.
