“Everyone in Sam's family could do something special. Everyone but Sam.” His siblings all have their talents, his parents and grandmother are all good at something, even his dog can do a special trick! Sam tries and tries to follow in the footsteps of his siblings, but he can’t seem to be able to succeed at anything - he even sets his brother’s computer on fire! Sam feels like a failure, but he soon discovers that what makes him unique is being able to do something that no one else in his family can.
Join Sam on his adventure to find what his “something special” is, all while learning a new language!
