12 year old Joey Caram's metabolism goes haywire one day. Everything seems to be moving at a snails pace. Time seems to stand still - or maybe he's moving faster! Joey soon discovers that he's capable of running 100 mph, able to clean his room in 4 seconds, and do all of his chores before a commercial finishes on TV. His parents are baffled, as are the doctors. But Mr. Itchez of Burnz and Itchez Pharmaceutical Corporation believes he can market Joey's new found gift, and will go to any lengths to acquire Joey's DNA!
