Gabriel is the drummer of an up-and-coming rock band in Dublin, who when not playing, can barely keep a handle on his drinking. When Gabriel agrees to get help, it’s revealed he’s bipolar. He is forced by his therapist to join a weekend mixed-ability soccer team, where the coach pushes him to befriend Christopher, a teenager with Asperger’s Syndrome. Soon Gabriel can’t seem to get rid of Christopher. But as time goes by, Gabriel will discover Christopher is not just the only friend he really has, but also exactly the kind he needs.
