When a naively sentimental clown doctor is approached by an 8 year old cancer patient in the hospital a bond is made and he must find a way to make the boy smile and learn to not get attached himself.
What’s wrong with getting attached? I was attached to my mom. She died. It’s that circle of life thing. No one’s beaten it yet. Perhaps he just needs to get over the taught/learned fear of attachment. And that’s a theme you could reflect in every aspect of his life. God knows fear of commitment (attachment in another form) is a popular rom-com theme.
Of course, my question is if he’s a clown doctor why does he have an eight year old for a patient. Who ever heard of an eight year old clown. Are you sure the kid is not a dwarf? There are lots of dwarf clowns. Either way, seems like a clown medicine is a very limited specialty but one that podiatrists and ENTs would be all over.
