Charleen is 15 years old, bright and witty, and convinced that she is the world’s biggest fan of Nirvana front-man Kurt Cobain, as well as other rock stars who died young, such as Jimi Hendrix and Amy Winehouse.

Waking up in hospital Charleen, her family and her friends are all forced to re-examine their lives and relationships with one another, partly through the help of an eccentric psychologist.
