When Barley Jacobson discovers his neurodivergent friend, Derek, (aka Gargantua) is being bullied because he wants to join the school’s soccer team, he challenges the ruffians to an after-school three-on-three soccer scrimmage to prove his friend’s worth. However, Barley is unaware of the potential danger to Gargantua because of a secret his friend hides, one connected to a student’s death last year. This secret sheds light on why the bully was after Derek.
