Kate and Will Spicer's brother, Tom, has fragile X syndrome, the commonest cause of inherited learning disability. He is also a massive fan of Lars Ulrich from Metallica. We made a promise to Tom that we would find Lars. Tom's dream is our promise. We went on a Mission to Lars. And we filmed it.

Tom's letter to Lars
29 January 2009
I am writing to thank you for all you did for me my brother and sister - when I met you backstage at Anaheim. It was great talking with you and to have played on your drums and gone into the concert with you was amazing - and very loud.
The trip was crazy. Following your tour from Vegas to Sacramento and then Anaheim was exhausting - for you to do this all year must mean you are very strong. There were times on the trip when I was afraid but you helped me be brave.
Since I came back everyone was shocked at some of things I had done - I know they are very proud of me.
How's Connie? I hope you all had a good Christmas. We'll be sure to send you some early cuts of the film as we would love you to be involved.
