The central character of the film is a challenged thirteen year-old autistic named Jimmy Mitchell (portrayed by Ian Colletti). In the quaint town of Pinery Grove, Georgia, he lives under the loving care of his family, striving to overcome the day-to-day struggles that surface. While deprived of mental normality, he is naturally gifted with a unique capacity to see beyond what most see. A supernatural element coincides with his natural gift, as angelic beings he calls "Watchers", are seen throughout his everyday experiences. His profound sense of observation leads him into trouble when stumbling onto the wrong place at the wrong time (which proves an arbitrary habit for Jimmy), as he must testify in a pivotal trial what he bore witness to.
