A typical day in the life of Tommy involves triple shot lattes, pining over the manager at Starbucks, and arson at Applebee’s. Such distractions are therapeutic when your older brother has been missing for months and your mom won’t stop force-feeding you Pop Tarts.
But when a well-meaning, if somewhat dysfunctional, “art therapist” shows up on his doorstep, Tommy must finally face his loss. Everything is Super Great explores the different ways we cope with grief, and how letting someone in helps us with letting something go.
