Different Drummers is an inspirational family movie, a true story from 1965, about an unusual spiritual journey and unlikely friendship: David, wheelchair-bound by muscular dystrophy, is growing progressively weaker, while his friend, Lyle, has a problem with an ever-increasing energy level. David informs Lyle that their teacher is about to die and claims that God told him. When their teacher does die, a doubtful and confused Lyle convinces David that he can teach him to run, secretly viewing this as a way to test the existence of God. When Lyle begins to twist the rules in a desperate attempt to give his friend some of his own excess energy, they come face to face with life's most transcendent and painful truths - and Lyle's questions are ultimately answered, in a way he never could have imagined.
