Zack a quinze ans. Il a été exclu de l'école et il s'ennuie. N'importe quelle activité serait la bienvenue. Lorsque sa mère l'amène faire de la géocache, Zack trouve un CD portant l'inscription « Célèbre ». Lorsqu'il l'écoute, la musique l'éblouit. Zack fait de la synesthésie : il voit des couleurs lorsqu'il entend de la musique et celle-ci lui fait voir d'incroyables motifs colorés. Zack devient obsédé par la fille qui chante sur le CD et décide qu'il doit la trouver.

Suspended from school, lonely and bored, fifteen-year-old Zack will do anything for amusement. His mom drags him out geocaching, and Zach finds a CD with the word Famous written across it. He puts the CD in his stereo and loses himself in the music. Zack has sound-color synesthesia. He sees colors when he hears music, and the music on the Famous CD causes incredible patterns of color for him. Zack becomes obsessed with the girl on the CD and decides he has to find her.
