Description:

I'm not the son you want, Dad. I can only let you down. Rory's dad is obsessed by Bob Dylan - nothing else matters, not a job, not money, not even Rory. When his two best mates hook up with his dad to release a music download, it goes totally viral. Rory's life is turned upside down - suddenly he is cool at school, in demand with girls, and worth his father's notice. But there's a price to pay for money and fame. As it affects every part of his life, Rory tries to keep his family together, while they all pull apart. Maybe Dylan was right after all. 'Behind every beautiful thing, there's been some kind of pain'.
