Karen Powell (Diane Lane) gives birth to Jack, an unusual child who ages four times faster due to Werner Syndrome – a form of progeria. As Jack grows up he initially seems withdrawn and lonely but eventually develops an extraordinary talent for reading people’s emotions which draws them in and is drawn into four best friend’s lives. Although most other kids shun him because he appears old for his age he eventually attends school where Lawrence Woodruff encourages him to mix with other students.
