A young man with cerebral palsy overcomes a paralyzed left hand, bullying, and stereotypes, as he dreams of becoming a rock guitarist—all the while told he will never succeed. His dreams become reality as he leads his own band, inspired by the band Korn, to express himself and use music as tool in his recovery.
