Believing the quote that you are born alone, die alone and everything else is an illusion, George doesn't see the point of life, school, or homework.

The school's principal and art teacher introduce him to an alumni, and successful artist, Dustin, who can help guide George along life's path, but other distractions start surfacing, and George might not even be able to graduate from high school.
