13-year old gay youth Shannon is bullied at school getting little relief or sympathy from the adults in his life or at school. Only when he imagines himself as a super-hero can he get through the daily grind of bullying and can he manage to teach the bullies a lesson.
One day, another student stands up for him against some bullies and Shannon draws a picture of his real-life hero and sticks it in the boy's locker. But the other boy is not appreciative which leads Shannon to a dangerous point.
