Sean McLoughlin doesn't have it easy. He lives in a poor family, which wouldn't be all bad if he didn't struggle with scoliosis and needed a surgery, that he couldn't afford. However things seem to look up for them when his father finds a good job opportunity in Ohio. Most kids probably looked forward to going to a new school but for Sean it simply meant more kids that would poke fun at him, wether it be for his clothes or for his condition. While time seems to be running out for Sean, and there seems to be no hope, maybe a new friend could bring a miracle.
