Placid Lake has always been different. Always gone a little too far. He has brilliant ideas which have either brought him great success or devastating failure. Usually the latter. He doesn't care; being different in a sea of mediocrity is okay by him. However, after flying off the roof of his school building on Graduation night and breaking almost every bone in his body, Placid decides to change who he is and become a normal straight-laced person of moderation. Placid must face what he has become, what he has lost and find a way to get back to who he really is.
