Scarlet is so busy she doesn’t know if she’s supposed to be wearing her ballet leotard or her soccer uniform. Her single dad, Jacob, is so tired that he collapses into bed with his clothes still on. The only time Scarlet and Jacob have to connect is when they’re in the car, speeding to the next activity. But when Jacob encounters a magical carousel, things start to turn in a whole new direction for this busy, busy family!
