Charlie is ten years old and diagnosed with Aspergers. He is proud of his diagnosis but sometimes wishes he could be more like the other boys in his class. Feeling different makes him feel left out at times. Because of his Aspergers, Charlie struggles with team sports. But he has found two things he loves to do, surfing and dancing. We follow Charlie through ups and downs at this year's surf camp.
