Movie Haiku:Wilburís a Glaswegean Peter Pan haunted by his motherís early death. Rather than face illness, aging & new losses, he keeps staging suicide attempts which never quite succeed. Then fate calls his bluff & the brother whoís always been his anchor needs his help. Can Wilbur grow up in time?
