Four young cousins ages five through nine are riding in the back seat of a 1953 Chevy Sedan.  Ah yes, those were the days when back seats were equivalent to overstuffed sofas.  It is a typical summer day in Southern California.  The children are played by adults—but the actors must take the most exquisite care to never talk like children.  The characters will be far more believable if they behave like children, who speak naturally and if any imitation takes place, it is children imitating adults. 

Occasionally, one of the characters steps away to speak as an adult.  The children play, argue, make and break alliances as children will do. 

The runs approximately 45 minutes.
