Sasha is just 13 years old and wants nothing more than to become a stand-up comedian. She wants to make everyone laugh, especially her father who cries in the shower when he thinks no one is listening. Behind her eyes, the life- threatening tears also burn on Sasha, but she refuses to mourn her mother, who has passed away. She secretly writes a list of everything she has to do to survive – shave her hair, stop reading books, say no to the world’s cutest puppy and above all – become a Comedy Queen.
The film is based on the book Comedy Queen by Swedish writer and psychologist Jenny Jägerfeld.
