NotesI heard this as a radio play and it was excellent. The play was a monologue by a young girl who was dying, I think, from cancer. Her story is not simply about herself but of those around her, and even includes her reflections on the holocaust. The film is only 50 minutes so I don't know what kind of release it will get. Spoonface is autistic, her parents have split and her mother is an alcoholic. Then she discovers she has cancer and it is terminal.
