Docu-dramedy recreating life of a young man who refuses to grow up while trying to cope with bipolar and borderline personality disorder as he meets colorful characters along the way, recruiting them into his "Neverland."
Created as a mini-series pitch, this docu-dramedy recreates the life of author Andrew Cristi (author of memoir series; "The Peter Pandrew Trilogy"), documenting his hardships from 1999 to present day as he embraces the nickname "Peter Pandrew" while refusing coming of age. Afflicted with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder (amongst other ailments), the anti-hero shows an accurate depiction of his diagnosis while flip-flopping and fighting with friends and lovers and trying to recruit them into his "Neverland" in his desperate attempts to build a stable family. The characters that he meets along the way are just as colorful and complex and all take on different issues as the film deals with everything from Mental Illness and Bipolar Disorder, Borderline PD, OCPD, Antisocial PD, Histrionic PD, Narcissistic PD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Feminism, Gender equality, LGBTQ stigmas, race, coming of age and refusal of coming of age.Written by
