Two brothers share a room, a love of comic books and a rather strict routine. Jake is on the autism spectrum; his older brother Simon has to adhere to that routine to help Jake get through the day. When a televised spelling bee contest is announced, Simon sees an opportunity to be the centre of attention for a change.
