Alive and KickingSTAND BY ME meets ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST – the new series by Albert Espinosa, creator of RED BAND SOCIETY
Four teens, Mickey, Yeray, Sam and Guada, are locked away on an island in a mental institution. Their bill of health is hefty: attention deficit disorder, obsessiveness, bipolar disorder, anxiety attacks, and sociopathic tendencies. When Guada has only one day left in the institution, all four of them make their escape to freedom.
The thrill of it makes them feel like they could conquer the world. But soon, they face a ton of problems: How to get off the island? How to get food? How to travel? Where to go next? And most importantly, how not to get caught. But despite all this, a common strength unites them: the power of imagination. It got them out and now it will get them to Ibiza, to Mickey's brother who is sure to take them in...
With a detective on their heels, the “fab four” miraculously overcome all obstacles with the help of their very own ingenuity, courage and wit – begging the question, who is truly sick: them or society locking them in.
