Joey is a sickly looking kid who's been raised to believe that he's allergic to pretty much everything with a hue. His mother has him on a strict diet that avoids a huge list of food - anything that isn't white is off the table - literally. Why the restrictive diet? Well, it turns out every food gives Joey a different super power! Lunch time just got a whole lot crazier!
