Alexander is an 11-year-old boy who experiences a series of disastrous events in just one day, from waking up with chewing gum stuck in his hair and tripping over in front of the girl he likes to someone at school sending round embarrassing photos of him and him setting fire to the science lab. His family seem to be having the best day ever though with his father looking at an impressive new job and his brother looking forward to getting his driver's license. The next day, however, the tables have turned as everyone sleeps in, his father seems out of his depth in his job interview, the baby eats felt tip pen and his brother crashes the family car during his driving exam. While everyone wallows in their own bad luck, it's up to Alexander to realise that he's not the only one who has bad days - and remind his family of that too.
