Shawn is a normal teenage boy. He likes girls, he likes music and television. However, there is one thing about him that's special: he is physically incapable of movement. He can't move his legs, arms, mouth, eyes, toes or anything. He can't move at all. He sits there drooling in his wheelchair. The world looks at him as mentally retarded, simply because he looks different and can't speak or move. On the contrary, he is more intelligent than most people....
