"It's been two years since I received my life sentence of imprisonment."
Diagnosed with a rare form of meningitis, a teenage boy is paralyzed from head to toe--trapped in his own mind. To cope with his imprisonment, he retreats to an imaginary world called his Mind Palace, but the lines between reality and time start to blur into wild adventures after he gets a new roommate--an old, outspoken, Jewish jazz musician with dementia.
