When a fifteen-year-old boy named Christopher finds his neighbor’s dog speared to death by a garden fork, he decides to follow the clues and find the killer. Christopher, much like Sherlock Holmes, is a genius in his own right, capable of solving incredibly complex mathematical problems and logical puzzles. Yet, as a teen suffering from Asperger’s syndrome, he finds it difficult to interpret and understand the emotion-driven behavior of the people around him. Although forbidden by his father, Christopher’s decision to venture out and solve the mystery soon turns into a voyage of self-discovery.
