Geek Magic is a coming-of-age comedy that follows an overweight high school senior and his single mother as they discover the magic of the suburbs. Iguanas, mushrooms, basketball, painting and punk rock play a large part in one young man’s journey to self-acceptance. Geek Magic captures the wonder and terror of a suburban adolescence.
