Along the way he finds confidence in his love for the arts and learns the importance of using his voice with the help of a very famous ghostly friend Vincent Van Gogh. Accompanied by a pop-rock contemporary score, this is a journey of finding identity and self acceptance that challenges others to look beyond the surface of everyone they meet.
