A skinny high school sophomore dreams up a science project that will make him a living legend, and win him the heart of a pretty senior who sees his true potential. Michael Peck (Keir Gilchrist) is the kid nobody sees while he's walking down the hall. But when popular senior Emily (Brie Larson) takes a liking to Michael, he starts to become a little less invisible. Meanwhile, Michael's well meaning yet misguided parents (Adam Arkin and Marcia Cross) pressure him to enter the upcoming science fair - an event that could land him right back in the land of misfits. With his newfound popularity hanging precariously in the balance, the smart and stealthy teen dreams up a science project that will turn heads, and teach his parents a valuable lesson.
