The major conflict in this movie is man versus society. Radio normally goes unnoticed, but when people start to see him, they call him names, bully him, and even locked him in a shed. All of this happened, because he is developmentally delayed and therefore "not normal". Radio gets mad at himself, but is always nice to other people no matter what they do to him. It takes most people a long time to start liking him for who he is not what he looks like.
