The comedy drama Terri takes an affectionate and often left of center look at the world of high school through the eyes of a group of misfits headed by the titular Terri, a 15 year old high school student. As the film begins, Terri Thompson is struggling with his life both in and out of school. At home Terri is providing care for his uncle, who is the guardian of Terri and has no other known family members. After being bullied and struggling to keep up with his school work, Assistant Principal Darryl Fitzgerald attempts to help Terri and a number of other kids he fears are struggling with life by organizing weekly support meetings. Terri and the others attending the weekly morning meetings, including Chad and Heather, discuss their lives and seek to find the reasons for their problems and acceptance with the other members of the group. Fitzgerald tries to help the group overcome their problems, but rarely has the correct skills to do so despite his well meaning attitude.
