Ten-year-old Milo has a rare skin condition, but does not realise how bad it is. His neurotic parents can’t accept their son’s aberration and frenetically keep it hidden from him and the outside world. The Irish boy grows up in isolation. Dearly wanting to go on a school camp, Milo stakes everything: he tears himself loose from his parents’ stranglehold. A sensitive coming-of-age drama about self-acceptance.
