A stormy night. A suburban hospital. A delivery room. In the act of coming into the world, a child named Oscar flew away, floating lighter than a balloon. Maybe it was a miracle, or maybe a trick of nature. But whatever it was the mother and grandmother ran away, keeping him hidden from the eyes of the world for many years. They are good people, people from another era, to their eyes it's too dangerous for others to know. But the "marvel" can't be kept hidden after all these years and It decides to reveal itself. Upsetting one of the few objective certainties of human knowledge: gravity, that Oscar doesn't possess. The "wonder" creates quite a stir and curiosity amongst peers, media, scientific community all over the world. Everyone wants to see him, to meet him, to greet him, to interview him, to exploit him and study him. Oscar became an international star, but lives it like a punishment, he only wants to be like everyone else: normal. Nothing more than normal. So he runs, looking for a woman's love and companionship. The only one woman who ever cared for him. The only one who can make him understand the exceptional nature of his gift.
