A touching narrative story about a starving musician, Finn Faber (Tyler Shaw), who gets a temporary job as a therapeutic clown at a hospital entertaining sick kids. He is assigned a 9 year-old leukemia patient, Sophia Hill (Sadie Munroe). Finn soon realizes that Sophia coming into his life was no coincidence.
Finn hits a wall with his first one-on-one performance for an unresponsive and depressed Sophia. But over a couple of interactions, they begin conversation. Finn even inspires Sophia to start painting again, and he tries to help her through her illness using music and art therapy. Sophia's parents, along with other hospital staff, see a big difference in her attitude, which sparks their own reflective conversations. As Finn turns a new page and listens to his own advice, he is motivated to chase his own dream career. This also distracts Finn from a surprise break-up with his long-term girlfriend. With emotional aid and support from his loyal friend (Jake Raymond), Finn eventually realizes that this heartache can be reevaluated as growth. Healing starts with the heart.
