Spin Out

Ben Cheng used to live the good life — he had wealthy parents, lots of friends and respect as an online gamer. But when his parents separated, he had to move to a small apartment with his mom, his dad was out of the picture, and his new schoolmates started teasing him for his family’s fall from grace. All Ben has left is his virtual life, where he still reigns supreme as an online driver.

Ben’s life starts to spin out of control when he takes his mom’s car out for a joyride and gets caught. Then he’s in even deeper trouble when his mom finds out he has charged expensive upgrades for his online car on her credit card without permission. When Ben’s dad secretly starts emailing him, Ben gets his hopes up that everything will return to the way it once was — he just has to loan his dad the money to get to Ben’s big tournament coming up. It’s not until Ben’s dad is a no-show that he finally realizes the effect that his dad’s gambling addiction and his own gaming addiction have on his family and his life.
