Oskar is the ultimate teenage loner. He ran away from home at 13, he hates being touched and his eyes are always itchy from chronic conjunctivitis. To perk himself up he paints other people’s misery and there’s so much of that about!

But one day during a not-so-routine eye test his bleak perspective is blown apart, when he tries on a pair of unusual lenses. The world he glimpses is filled with love, light and wonder – and Oskar is furious.

But somehow those lenses have changed his perception for good. Slowly, much against his darker nature, he starts to see the beauty and joy that surrounds him. He even falls in love.

Will it be an easy ride? Hell no!
