Norman Long is a high school loner, a self‐aware and darkly funny teen who's just trying to handle his daily existence. In the wake of his mother's sudden death, Norman must now also deal with the reality that his father is starting to lose his bagle with stomach cancer. Depressed and angry, Norman unintentionally becomes entangled in a lie that he, in fact, has stomach cancer. Soon his distortion of the facts spirals out of control. Part coping mechanism, partially as a way to feel closer to his father, and as a tentative attempt to prepare others for his possible suicide, Norman begins to imitate his father's debilitating physical symptoms, dramatically affecting his life and the world around him. Emily, a magnetic girl with one of those rare enchanting smiles, gets caught up in Norman's lie and struggles with her deeply rooted romantic feelings in the face of Norman's perceived impending death. Norman must confront a burning set of conflicting emotions as he struggles to define his relationship with his father, his love for Emily, and ultimately who he will be as a young man.
