Jake, a wheelchair user, has always been closely watched over by his father and admired for his bravery by those around him. Now that he's turned 18, he finds himself alone at home for the first time, with only his best friend June by his side. Seizing this opportunity, they plan to explore their desires and engage in a sexual encounter. However, Jake's overprotective father, an unexpected encounter with a spider, and the presence of an aging football superstar create unexpected complications. These encounters serve to underscore the dark and challenging realities of life as a disabled individual in society.
