  Synopsis
Sam is twelve years old and loves to collect stories and strange phenomenons. He wants to know about UFOs and scary films, aircrafts and ghosts. He also wants to know what it's like to have a sip of beer, to sneak your first drag on a cigarette, to kiss a girl for the first time...

Sam wants to know what teenagers feel like, because he will not live to be one. He has Leukemia, and even though adults reply with ambiguity and try to avoid some subjects, Sam wants to know all the facts and details concerning death. He is willing to find out the answers to the questions that nobody wants to answer, that is why he decides to write a book. A book that will be a diary about himself, but also a "scientific investigation" with observations, lists of proven facts about things that someday he will do (like beating a world record, fly in an airship or look at the stars from a spaceship) and thoughts about his questions.

Along with his parents, his sister Ella and his friend Felix, with whom he will live endearing moments, Sam will share with us his individual, moving and at times amusing view of the world and of his own circumstances, revealing himself as the voice of an exceptional being transformed by the hugeness of what awaits him.
