Pear Cider and Cigarettes (2016)

Drink and smoke...that's what Techno Stypes really like to do, and fight. He was in no condition to fight. He was sick, really sick. His disease had whittled him down to a shadow of his former self. He was crippled from a car accident when he was 17 but that's not how he lost his big toe. He lost that in a motorbike accident, yeah he was broken alright - what the hell was he fighting for anyway and what was he still doing in China? His father had given me two clear instructions: 1. Get Techno to stop drinking long enough to receive the liver transplant, and 2. Get him back home to Vancouver. This was not going to be easy.

Pear Cider and Cigarettes is a 2016 Canadian animated short film directed by Robert Valley and produced by Cara Speller. The film and the graphic novel of the same name are based on a true story. It received widespread acclaim upon its release.

A hard-living daredevil's self-destructive spiral eventually leaves him lying in a Chinese hospital in desperate need of a liver transplant.
