synopsis
Joey and Lenny don't realize how much they love each other. Like so many siblings, they fight often. Each brother sometimes wishes the other were dead. One day both boys are forced to discover what it might really feel like if this wish came true.

With his father in jail and his mother working long hours at a nursing home, Lenny is burdened with the responsibility of looking after his seven-year-old brother, Joey. On his twelfth birthday, Lenny plays a practical joke on his little brother. Believing that he has accidentally killed his brother, Joey runs away to Coney Island, convinced that he can never go home again. Lenny searches for Joey. As night falls and Joey does not return, Lenny fears the worst. He regrets his actions and becomes more and more desperate to find his little brother-alive and unharmed.

Set in present-day Brooklyn, Little Fugitive is a contemporary remake of the 1953 classic.
