Brandon is the largest person in his class, yet he's also the timidest and often feels invisible despite his size. One day, he gets bullied by the smallest kid in class, but a video the bully's friend recorded and edited makes it seem like Brandon is the bully. Now Brandon is being sent to the principal's office with his mother for something he didn't even do. Little does Brandon know, though, his life is about to change forever.
