Deacon Locke is terrified of girls and of everyone else. His own grandmother Jean is his best and only friend. So, when senior prom rolls around in Deacon’s quiet town, he unintentionally causes an uproar by inviting his grandmother to be his date. He gets more than he asked for, however, when a video of him and Jean dancing goes viral and he’s offered the chance of a lifetime to dance in a reality show. His new friends and his budding romance are jeopardized by his choice, compounded by Jean’s growing dementia.
