Official Synopsis from Sundance:
Director Azazel Jacobs (Momma’s Man) returns to Sundance with a tale that will speak to anyone who has ever felt insecure or misunderstood. In other words . . . everyone. Orphaned to an uncle who is ailing, mercilessly teased by his peers, and roundly ignored by his jaded teachers, Terri finds himself alienated and alone. But when the dreaded vice principal, Mr. Fitzgerald, sees a bit of himself in the boy, they establish a friendship that encourages Terri to consider the possibility that life is something to be shared, even enjoyed, not just endured. Wonderfully enacted, perceptive, and honest, Terriperfectly captures the lonely life of an outcast. But we don’t pity or laugh at him; we relate to him. Remaining true to himself in the face of adversity, Terri becomes an unlikely hero. Filled with heart and humor, Terri is a comedy about feeling alone, and discovering there are others who feel the same way.
