Seven-year-old Albert was raised in a shiny world of sequins and show girls, surrounded by the magic and fantasy of Las Vegas. But when his single mother is suddenly killed in a car accident, Albert is sent from Vegas to live with his mother's childhood best friend whom he never knew existed, Harriet Franklin, in the decidedly not fantastic and not magical city of Newark, New Jersey. As if raising a newfound "son" isn't trying enough for the fiercely independent Harriet. Albert has brought along a friend, an imaginary one that no one else can see, a stupendous, gentle giant of a Frenchman named Bogus. As Albert and Harriet struggle to get used to each other, Harriet's world of reality is brought face-to-fact with Albert's world of imagination. While she grapples with sharing her one-person existence with this strange little boy who seems to talk to himself. Albert begins to rely more and more on his fantasy episodes, hoping to keep hold of the place he once called home.
