10-year-old Jovan has had cerebral palsy for as long as he can remember. His condition made him think of himself as invisible to others – particularly his parents and classmates. In the world of his imagination, however, he is free to be who he wants and possesses the hero superpowers that everybody dreams of. Jovan's (extra)ordinary existence is suddenly shaken up by a new classmate, Milica. Bit by bit, brave and determined Milica tears down the wall that Jovan has built around himself and eventually invites him to join her on a real life adventure – to liberate her father from his new wife, Milica’s stepmother, whom she believes is a witch.
