'Next year I'm gonna be 18; when I'm 18 I'm gonna get my own place, have a car, have a nude girlfriend and you can come around to my place for pizza'. Meet Eddie. He's a 17-year-old boy with Down Syndrome. He's stubborn and charming, funny and sometimes temperamental. Through the course of this documentary the viewer is invited to get to know Eddie - a rare treat - and journey with him as he turns 18 and prepares to leave school.
