The documentary film LONG LIVE MY HAPPY HEAD explores how art, humour and love can combat our fears of mortality. What would you do if you were told you had a dramatically life-shortening illness when you were 32 years old? Start making comic books about it of course! Well, that's what Gordon did anyway. Gordon is a Scottish comic book author with a brain tumor. To help his loved ones prepare for his death, he is creating a graphic novel. With his tumor’s growth accelerating, the global pandemic forces him into isolation and traps his long-distance partner in the States.
