Meet the man – Jack "The Jackdaw" Dawson. Jack is a man with a plan, a serious plan. Always on the lookout for a get-rich-quick scheme (essentially, a get-me-away-from-the-life-my-parents-live one), he thinks he has come up with the perfect solution – an app which stops you from getting into trouble for daydreaming in class (dreamed up while keenly observing a pigeon in the playground during a physics class). There’s just one problem – he doesn’t know the first thing about coding and the only person he knows who does a) doesn’t like him and b) won’t have anything to do with him. Unless, that is, he does her a favor… and so begins a burgeoning pile of favors, one after another and another – until the whole teetering heap of promises threatens to tumble down around Jack’s ears. Can The Jackdaw somehow deliver or is this going to prove too much even for his ingenious brain?
