Caine Monroy is a 9 year year child from East Los Angeles who created an entire arcade out of cardboard boxes in the his father's auto parts shop. Though he didn't have many visitors initially, everything changed like magic, when Academy award nominated short film maker Nirvan Mullick stopped by Caine's cardboard arcade, and was impressed with the young boy's idea, and decided to document it.
When Mullick asked Caine about his games, he was told that for $1 one could get 4 turns, or for $2 I could get a Fun Pass and 500 turns. Mullick got the fun pass. "Caine stamped my hand and I spent the next 30 minutes playing mini-soccer and mini-basketball with a crumpled up paper ball. It was super fun. I racked up about 14 tickets, and redeemed them for a sweet toy car that I gave to my friend’s son. When I was playing the games, Caine would run the arcade and at one point I was shooting some paper soccer, and when I scored a goal, he crawled under the box and pushed these tickets from outside the box. And you know when he did that it just brought me back to when I was kid..." said Mullick.
