1997

Junior Brown is an overweight black teenager with an unquenchable lust for food, but even more so for music. Despite the fact that his unstable mother hacked the strings out of their piano in a fit of madness, Junior continues to sit at the keyboard every day practicing with faith and determination on the silent instrument. His only friend is also an outcast named Buddy, a teenaged orphan who lives in an abandoned building he calls a planet, creating a sense of family by taking in young runaways like Butter. Junior and Buddy spend their afternoons in the basement of the local school contemplating the elaborate whirling model of the solar system they’ve built together.
