German Film Forum - At the Crossroads
Director: Florian Cossen, colour, 101 min., 2015
16-year-old Mike Tyson has had enough of life. The small, desolate place in northern Canada gets on his nerves as much as his nagging mother does. He’s never met his father. Mike’s suicide attempt is unsuccessful, but the doctors then diagnose him with a brain tumour. The boy who longs to die refuses to be operated on. Mike meets his father, but that barely helps him, due to his mother’s interventions. Everything seems to change when he meets Miranda.
