Nick Young (Booboo Stewart) is a high school freshman with Asperger syndrome who idolizes his perfect older brother Chaz Young (Harry Shum, Jr.). While riding his bike to a friend's house, Chaz is hit by a group of guys driving recklessly and dies. The crash leaves Nick fighting to overcome his grief while feeling misunderstood by his distraught parents (played by BD Wong and Joan Chen), who are left trying to preserve the memory of their "perfect son".
Despite initial hostility, Randy (Gregg Sulkin), Chaz's best friend, warms to Nick and takes him under his wing. Randy tells Nick how his brother spent "his whole life trying to keep up this lie that you were a perfect family". Through his interactions with Randy, Nick learns more about his brother's life and the two bond in their grief. The two boys help each other come to terms with the different loss they each feel and let Nick move forward with bringing the Young family together again.
White Frog was written by the mother/daughter duo Fabienne Wen and Ellie Wen. Ellie Wen's mentor, David Henry Hwang, was an executive producer. Principal photography was completed in August 2011.
