An unlikely friendship develops between the bipolar drummer of a rock band and a teenager suffering from Asperger's syndrome.
Gabriel is a chaotic young rock drummer trying to hide his recent Bipolar diagnosis from his band mates. As part of his therapy he must attend a “mixed ability” football game where he gets into trouble with Christopher, a 17-year-old with Aspergers Syndrome. He is now forced to "makes friends" with Christopher to be able to continue therapy. When the socially-inept young goalkeeper takes this offer of friendship literally, Gabriel finds his footsteps dogged and secrets threatened by an embarrassingly eager and dangerously tactless new disciple.
