Troy Billings is seventeen, overweight and suicidal. Just as he's about to jump in front of a bus, he is saved by Marcus, a charming high school dropout/street musician. The two begin an uneasy friendship when Marcus enlists the musically- challenged Troy to become the drummer in a new punk rock band. As Troy's relationship with Marcus develops, Troy's father becomes increasingly concerned about his son's new friendship.
