Synopsis: SYNOPSIS:
In an age where everyone seems to blend in, Willie stands out. Constantly being the subject to ridicule, Willie simply smiles. A unique factor to his high school, there is no one who can bring him down, or so it seems. A new attractive girl and an upcoming dance, turns Willie’s life upside down as love forces him to lower his shield. In the process of conquering love Willie learns the effects of being vulnerable, breaking down his bubble and forging a stronger one.
