FULL SYNOPSIS

Filmmaker [[Performer~P506530~Jennifer Venditti~jennifervenditti]] crafts a cinéma vérité-style coming-of-age story with this portrait of a small-town teen from Maine who struggles to embrace his outsider status while still being shaped by the tragic events of his childhood. It was while casting the [[Performer~P474247~Carter Smith~carterbsmith]] film [[Feature~V347125~Bugcrush~bugcrush]] that [[Performer~P506530~Venditti~jennifervenditti]] first encountered the boy named [[Performer~P522973~Billy~billyp]] -- his eccentric wisdom leaving an immediate and lasting impression on the filmmaker. Later, after casting [[Performer~P522973~Billy~billyp]] in the film and preparing to craft a documentary about everyday heroes, [[Performer~P506530~Venditti~jennifervenditti]] and her crew returned to Maine to spend five days with the troubled young boy who had commanded her attention. Shunned by his classmates and categorized as a "special needs" student by his teachers, [[Performer~P522973~Billy~billyp]] boldly refuses to be victimized by his individuality in an environment obsessed with labels and conformity. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
