A young boy named Odd is so concerned about crushing his fragile head that he is afraid to join in any of the fun at school. Then one day he meets Gunn, a spirited and headstrong girl who helps turn the sensitive and shy boy's life around. He begins to embrace his uniqueness and through this new sense of acceptance, finally begins to break out of his shell.
