Colin sits alone in the cafeteria every day. The eye patch he must wear over his injured eye makes him a favorite target of the school bullies. When Amy transfers to Colin's school and wants to sit with him, he's suspicious of her motives. Most of his classmates have been trying to get the secret of what happened to his eye for years, but he's never told a soul. When Amy asks about the eye patch, Colin makes up increasingly outrageous stories (which are acted out on the stage). Finally, Amy becomes fed up with Colin's stories and he is faced with the choice to open up to Amy and make a friend or to keep his defenses up and remain alone.
