    • Synopsis
    • Charlie Kane can’t catch a break. As a child, he lost both his pet parakeet and his
      mother (to an open cage and pancreatic cancer respectively). As a result, he grew
      into a man who expects the worse out of life and gets it. But that changes when, by
      chance, he meets a bright, sunny sprite of a woman named Holly. She buys him new
      clothes, shows him the joy in life and generally turns him from a dour drip into
      someone finally allowing himself to be happy. Then a bus flattens her before Charlie
      eyes. In the depths of misery, Charlie opts for suicide. But he can’t even successfully
      give up on life. Left with no other choice, he adopts Holly’s ethos of positivity and
      just decides to be happy… by ignoring all the bad things in life. But his cynical best
      friend isn’t buying Charlie’s new-found happiness and sets out to save Charlie by
      making him miserable again. But is Charlie actually better off this way? Can delusion
      become reality?
