What Is The Plot of Spoiler Alert?
Have you been in a relationship where you thought the other person was far too good for you? Michael Ausiello goes through something like this when he meets Kit Cowan. Michael is constantly afraid that the more Kit learns about him, the more likely he is to leave him and break Michael’s heart. Kit, however, is a walking green flag and we all wished we had him in our lives. Michael and Kit’s relationship grows and it is swoon-worthy, every step of the way. Michael has always been convinced that his life was a romantic comedy, but after things take a turn in their life, he believes it might just be a romance.
Romance always comes with tragedy, doesn’t it? Romance doesn’t promise a happy ending. In fact, romance has loss and sadness. The smooth sailing relationship between Michael and Kit hits a big hurdle when Kit is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Michael always thought Kit would break his heart and leave him, he just never imagined it would be this way. Now, the couple must tackle this together, because after all, it’s all about being together, in sickness and health. Kit’s days might be limited, and if that’s the case, we just know that Michael will do whatever it takes to make the most of it.

The movie will be based entirely on the memoir and Michael Ausiello will be an important part of the entire process, from pre-production until editing. It is his story at the end of the day.
