Auggie Pullman (Jacob Tremblay), 10, was born with a facial deformity and has had 27 surgeries in order to help him to breathe, see, and hear without a hearing aid, but he still looks different. Even though he's never been to school before, he begins attending Beecher Prep School in fifth grade.
He often wears a helmet in public, but takes it off the first day of school, as his parents (Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson) send him off to school with trepidation. Auggie wants everyone to understand he's just a regular kid, and that people shouldn't judge others by their looks.
Based on the New York Times bestseller by R.J. Palacio.
