For Ages 12 and Over
Set in the last days of the life of a 13-year-old girl, Daisy (Hattie Gotobed), who suffers from terminal Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). By chance, she meets Stinky, aka Peter (Max Brown), a British war veteran and drug addict. Like Peter Pan, Stinky is stuck in Neverland; and like Wendy, Daisy inspires him to change his ways—helping him learn to appreciate life, find a home, but most importantly, find the kind of love that she knows she will never get to experience. Inspired by the incredible life and spirit of Maisy Keetch.
Here is a very inspiring story and documentary of how one young girl encourages a man who has lost his way in life. Based on the life of a young girl with a serious, sometimes deadly disease Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), Daisy tells the story about the life she will never see and opens the eyes of Stinky, a homeless drug addict, to a better life.It also is a documentary about the making of the short story and the little girl that it is based on, Maisy. There are many challenges this child goes through each day, as her skin is very sensitive to everything. Everyday actions we take for granted is a challenge for Maisy, such as hugging someone, touching things, even taking a bath. The conversation with Maisy and her mom is very enlightening about this devastating disease but also how they cope with love and joy./P>
