He's not like other kids - he's both too fast and too slow.

He sees too much, and too little. Jimmy's mother Paula is the only one who can manage him.

She teaches him how to count sheep so that he can fall asleep.

She holds him tight enough to stop his cells spinning.

It is only Paula who can keep Jimmy out of his father's way.

But when Jimmy's world falls apart, he has to navigate the unfathomable world on his own, and make things right.
