At 10 years old Alex Woods made the news for being struck in the head by a meteorite. He found himself back in the spotlight at seventeen when he is stopped at customs with an urn of ashes and a bag of marijuana. What happens in between is a touching story of an unlikely friendship between an epileptic boy and a reclusive American expat and Vietnam veteran.
This quirky debut stars a memorable cast of characters. Issues surrounding terminal illness and end of life decisions are dealt with in a serious and touching manner. Thought-provoking and moving. Be sure to have a tissue handy!
