George is a geeky misfit in the tumble-dryer of school life. Now in his first year at high school, George is forced to play Tuba, the least cool instrument in the known universe in the brutal culture that is school wind-band. Bullied by Rufus & Ricky, the band's trumpet stars, and exposed to ridicule through the misguided help of his tomboy-sister, Lilly, George wishes he could just disappear.
