Synopsis: Tom, an overweight young man, takes refuge at his grandmother's cabin in rural Protection, IL, in an attempt to bury the years of being bullied and feeling rejected. While in town, he meets a precocious blind girl named Lilly, who shows him how to be accepted and loved. Tender, funny and dramatic, the film shows characters not often depicted onscreen as leads, in a unique coming of age story.

"...a sublime coming-of-age tale that is occupied with outsiders as it's main chaaracters, offering a fresh and unique perspective on adolescent frustrations and connections" --UK Film Review
