He is cut off from all forms of physical human contact, and can only venture outside with use of an enormous sterile plastic sphere. With the help of his loving parents, Johnny and Mickey, Tod slowly learns to accept his isolated and lonely existence...until the day he meets and falls in love with Gina Biggs, the girl next door. Tod is now faced with another struggle...whether to remain apart from Gina, or follow his heart and risk almost certain death to be with her.
