Anthony arrives at his schoolmate Caroline's door bearing waffle fries, a copy of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, and an urgent homework assignment. He needs her help. Caroline is sick and hasn't been to school in months. She is as quick and sarcastic as Anthony is quiet and steadfast; both are smart as whips. As these two let down their guards, their seemingly mundane poetry project reveals a much deeper, more profound mystery that has brought them together. I AND YOU is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.
