Think Big. Dream Bigger.

University student Vanessa calls on the Holmes family to transform Solid State, an entrepreneurial co-op centre for racialized youth. With the centre’s headquarters cramped, tired, and uninspiring, the Holmes family, along with Vanessa, Solid State’s co-founder Matt, and the cohorts get their hands dirty turning the centre into a place where young dreamers can collaborate and flourish. The Holmes family faces a major dilemma when they’re forced to shut down the work site due to the global pandemic.
