Benjamin Lebert introduces himself on the first day at his new school: "Hi, I'm Benjamin Lebert, I'm 16 and a cripple. Just so you know..." He is paralysed down his left side, but nevertheless lives his life to the full as a rebellious schoolboy, smoking, drinking, running away, meeting girls and having sex - and all the while pondering the meaning of life.
