Based on the successful book by NZ author Anthony McCarten, Death of a Superhero brings laughs, tears and incredible animated sequences to the screen. To the world around him, Donald (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) appears to be a typical teenager. He's moody towards his parents, awkward around girls, and ambivalent about the struggle to fit in at school. But Donald also possesses an extraordinary imagination and a talent for art that sets him apart from his peers. When he is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, Donald retreats into the fantasy world of the superheroes which he creates in order to avoid confronting the reality of his life. With the help of a compassionate therapist (Andy Serkis), family and friends who care for him, and a young woman who becomes his first love (Aisling Loftus), Donald decides to make the most of every day.
