Dr. Dave and the Girl Who Couldn't Laugh


During a dark time in his life, Dr. Dave, a licensed therapist and college professor, creates a project he called "12 Months to Live" to help him get out of his melancholic funk. He asked himself, "What would I do if I had 12 months to live?" as a way to frame what turned out to be a global research expedition to figure out his life. Each month for a year, he would come up with a new interest, career, or passion he wanted to explore. He worked with the United Nations World Food Program in Nepal, walked alone into the Cascade Wilderness for a three day/three night solo fast vision quest, and shot an adventure film while trekking up Everest. And then he met the girl who couldn't laugh.
