Imagine that you’re a kid from New Jersey, 14 years old and gay. It would be unfortunately normal to suffer abuse from your peers, but how about a cruel rejection from your high school glee club?

Johnny actually has a terrific voice; the only problem is that he’s a high soprano. He uses the glee club rejection as a reason to split for New York City. Bruce Springsteen is his idol, and he’s determined to follow in Springsteen’s footsteps.

Along the way, Johnny is encouraged to accept his queerness, while continuing to challenge himself to become another Springsteen.
