本片改編自年輕作者賈柯莫· 馬札里歐(Giacomo MAZZARIOL) 的暢銷同名自傳小說，故事真實描述比他多了一對染色體的「特別」弟弟，降臨到他的世界，他曾說：「我花了12 年才學會用我弟弟的眼睛看世界，我真心覺得，那個世界還不賴。」導演第一部長片將此故事搬上大銀幕，幽默且溫馨動人，適合闔家觀賞。
Jack has a brother, Gio, who has Down syndrome. As a child, Jack believed the tender lie his parents had told him, that Gio was a special being with superpowers, as in a comic book. Now that Jack is about to go to high school. However, he no longer believes that his brother is a superhero. In fact, he is almost ashamed of him, especially after he met Arianna, the first love of his life. Jack cannot allow himself to make any gaffes of bad impressions with the girl of his dreams, to the point that Jack pretends not to have any brother and hides the existence of Gio from the eyes of his new classmates and, above all, of Arianna. But you cannot be loved by someone as you are, if you cannot love someone despite his faults and this is a life-lesson that Jack will have to learn.
