Jack dotes on his younger brother Gio, whom he believes has superhero powers—but the truth about Gio is a little different, as Jack discovers during his difficult teenage years in this warm family dramedy.

Jack always wanted a little brother, and when Gio is born, he believes his parents when they tell him that Gio is a superhero with amazing powers. As he grows up, however, Jack realizes that his brother actually has Down syndrome, a condition that Jack decides to keep secret in high school. When the truth comes out, Jack learns that his brother's energy, vitality, and unique perspective can indeed change the world—just like a superhero.
