Thirteen year old Tom wants to audition for the school musical BATJACK, but he has a problem – a big one, Dylan! A bully and Tom is his arch enemy.
“You’ll pay for this,” swears Dylan when Tom is cast as Batjack and Dylan as his understudy. The battle begins – fights, verbal abuse, vandalism, theft – you name it, it happens.
And so from auditions to opening night Tom and his friends – Sonny whose shoulders are spindly as a wire coat hanger and Alice with more piercings that a sieve, come up with quirky and funny ways to deal with Dylan and his mates.
But why does Dylan bully? What is his secret and can Tom and Dylan reach a compromise and manage to co-habit the same planet?
