Chris has come to the super-store with his dad to spend his allowance − his heart set on getting a bouncy ball. But when he gets to the toy aisle, he soon discovers that all of the balls in the ball cage are bright pink...except for one deflated green ball. 

What follows is a fantastical awakening, as the pink balls come to life and Chris is swept up in a world where it's okay for boys to play with pink.

But ultimately he must make a choice: take home one of the bright pink balls or the deflated green ball?
