Ice Wonder is a young student at First High School and the sweetest boy in the world. It's so sweet because it's made entirely of ice cream. However, this external sweetness has also passed into him and thus Ice is kind-hearted and very kind.

But unfortunately, his classmates at his new school ignore his gifts and feel threatened by his difference. A group of children, led by the large Brad, begin to make fun of Ice's appearance and laugh at him. Many children participate in the teasing, some observe passively and only Tom stands by the new student of the school and tries to help him. Little by little and as long as Ice refuses to talk to his teachers or parents, the problem grows and reaches the point where even his life is threatened. Will the little boy be able to overcome his problems? Will anyone notice the bullying against him to help him? Will life in the small school community manage to return to normal?
