One day, Dad invites Billy into his shed to build something, but Billy soon finds out that he is only allowed to watch. As Dad becomes engrossed in his project, Billy takes Dad's off-cuts and other items from around the yard and shed and starts to copy what his Dad is building. Dad remains blissfully unaware At the end of the day, they reveal their creations -- two very different racing carts -- and Dad discovers that Billy has more skills and abilities than his dad had ever imagined Joining forces, Dad and Billy set out as a team to build a cart together -- the best one yet -- and enter the upcoming local cart race. Up to Something beautifully explores the father-son relationship, and how they can bond while doing things together that they both love, as well as touching on the power of imagination and creativity, and the satisfaction to be gained from recycling and making things ourselves.
