Andy and Cassidy are yearning to see their school friends and Clara desperately wants to make it happen. The challenge is that while thoughtful and understanding, her grandchildren’s friends don’t face the same hardships that Andy and Cassidy are currently experiencing.

Their friends want to see a movie at the new Paragon Theaters at Fenton in Cary, where tickets alone will cost $25 for Andy and Cassidy together. Their friends’ parents can afford to pay for movie tickets, snacks, drinks, and even arcade games after.

Clara decides to pay for this afternoon of fun, but it means she might not be able to pay an upcoming utility bill for their home.
