Troy, an overweight teen, lives in his fantasies and decides to end it all by stepping in front of a bus. Marcus, a druggie and high school dropout, saves Troy at the last moment and begins using him for occasional money to buy food or drugs. When Marcus eventually invites the musically challenged Troy to join his new punk rock band, Troy discovers that banging on the drums unleashes a confidence that forever alters his reality. – SIFF
