GAGA! is a short coming of age film. The story follows our main character Gaga, a young innocent teenager who has recently lost his mother. Gaga and his older brother David are left to move into their auntie Sue’s house. He struggles to adjust to the change in environment and makes a plan to run away on his 14th birthday.

Gaga wakes early on the morning of his birthday to write his goodbye letter. All the while David has woken earlier than usual to steal a playstation for Gaga as a birthday gift. When David arrives home he finds the letter and an empty bedroom. Gaga has made a run for it. David jumps on his bike to find Gaga and bring him home.
