White Frog is a coming-of-age story about 15 year old Nick Young (Booboo Stewart), a neglected teen with Asperger’s Syndrome whose life is challenged and ultimately changed forever when tragedy hits his family. Taken under the wing of his brother’s best friends, he is forced out of his comfort zone and must reconcile who he was and who he wants to become. It is a universal story about the power of family, friendship, and love appealing to a broad audience in the same way as Ordinary People and Stand By Me.
