Limited Theatrical Release – Different Drummers is a deeply inspirational and transcendent family film – based on a true story – about the unusual spiritual journey and unlikely friendship of two boys growing up in Spokane, Washington in the mid 1960s. Eleven-year-old DAVID, wheelchair-bound by muscular dystrophy, is growing progressively weaker, while his friend, LYLE (10), has a problem with an increasingly high energy level.
David informs Lyle that their teacher is about to die and states that the source of this sad revelation is none other than God.
