A young boy receives a mysterious box as his 13th birthday draws near, and scours the streets of Manhattan for the four keys that will reveal the secret of his perplexing gift in this lighthearted tale based on the book by Wendy Maas. In one month, Jeremy Fink will become a teenager. Meanwhile, as the wonders of adolescence approach, the mailman delivers Jeremy a locked box labeled, "The Meaning of Life - for Jeremy Fink to open on his 13th birthday." But the box is tightly sealed by four locks, and the keys are nowhere to be found. With less than 30 days to go until reaching that landmark birthday, Jimmy recruits his best friend Lizzy to help scour the city for the missing keys. The closer Jimmy comes to discovering what secrets dwell inside the box, the more difficult it becomes to contain his growing excitement.
