As a kid, Jack was sure his brother Gio was a superhero with special powers, just like in the comics. Now that he is about to go to high school, Jack is aware that his brother has Down syndrome. Jack is almost ashamed of him now. When he meets Ana, his first love ever, Gio’s unpredictable behavior becomes a growing burden. Concerned about his status among his classmates, Jack conceals the fact that he has a brother. The film won the EFA Young Audience Award.
