Nineteen-year-old Poppy Simpson refuses to be defined by Down syndrome and is determined to take charge of her own life.
Nineteen-year-old Poppy Simpson is an irrepressible young woman with Down syndrome - and the idea that she should get to do what everyone else does: have a job, drive a car, get married, have sex, be in charge of her own destiny. Holding her back is Dave, her older brother and only family since the death of their parents. They work together in their inherited auto shop business, but super-protective Dave doesn't think she's up to getting her driver's license, becoming an auto mechanic, or having an adult relationship. Quietly rebellious, Poppy secretly begins to teach herself to drive, finds a friend at the Automobile Association where she's get her provisional license, and reconnects with a school friend, Luke, who needs his car repaired in time for the local burnout competition - Poppy offers to fix his car on the quiet in exchange for driving lessons. All the while, the family repair business is failing badly, Dave's overwhelmed and drowning his worries in alcohol, and on burnout day, Poppy secretly decides to enter the competition herself. Watch out world - there's no holding her back! She's got all the right skills, and soon no one will be able to deny them - and that she's unstoppable.
