Synopsis: 16-year-old Mike Tyson is stuck living with his overbearing single mother in a tiny Canadian mining town that no longer has a mine. Assuming he has little to live for, Mike leaves instructions on how to feed his fish, covers the room in plastic tarps, writes an obituary for the next day's newspaper, and shoots himself in the head with his absent father's rifle. Despite his impeccable planning, Mike wakes up the next day at the hospital having survived the attempt, but the doctor has made a surprising discovery—Mike has a walnut-sized brain tumor. After meeting with a therapist, Mike is assigned to a dedicated social worker named Miranda and before long he may just begin to find that life is worth living. Like its protagonist, Florian Cossen's unique film feature a spectacular script by Elena von Saucken and a wonderful lead performance by Alex Ozerov making it an exciting discovery and a winning audience favorite.
