David has congenital insensitivity to pain with anhydrosis—or CIPA for short. One of only a handful of people in the world who suffer from CIPA, David can't do the things every teenager does. He might accidentally break a limb and not know it. If he stands too close to a campfire, he could burn his skin and never feel it. When David's legal guardian tells him that he needs to move into an assisted living facility, David is determined to prove him wrong. He creates a bucket list, meets a girl with her own wish list, and then sets out to find the parents who abandoned him years ago. All David wants to do is grow old, beat the odds, find love, travel the world, and see something spectacular. While he still can.
