Jacob O'Leary has Cerebral Palsy. Thanks to the tireless efforts of his mother he can walk unaided, but people are nonetheless aware of his disabilities. The small town of Palmerston is, however, being stalked by a dark presence: someone is mutilating animals. When a Muslim boy, Mahmoud, is accused, Jacob takes it on himself to prove the whole town wrong. But Jacob has never even spoken to Mahmoud, so what is he up to? Is he just being politically correct to please his teachers and new girl, Chloe? Or is this really about Jacob establishing an identity for himself and breaking away from the love and sympathy that has both nurtured and held him back?
