Moose On The Loose (The RE-BOOT)

A comedy about an Italian family and a Canadian moose.

When a loose moose wanders into town holding a Molson Canadian beer and gets stuck in the Polish neighbor’s camper trailer, four generations of an Italian/Canadian immigrant family from Calabria in Southern Italy soon realize the moose isn’t the only one who is stuck, displaced, and confused.
