    • Synopsis
    • Abandoned by his father at an early age and the butt of abuse at his school in a sleepy logging town, 16 year-old MIKE TYSON (a name that's just one of his many problems) is determined to exit this messed-up world. His various suicide attempts have met with failure, but when Mike learns that he's got a potentially fatal brain tumor that requires immediate surgery, he considers it an answer to his prayers. He keeps his condition a secret from the adults in his life -- including his overbearing mother, CYNTHIA – waiting for nature to do the work for him. But when Mike is befriended by MIRANDA, a newcomer to town, he experiences a glimmer of romance and realizes that his life, however problematic, may be worth living after all...
