Narrated by Weird Al Yankovic, TINY TIM: KING FOR A DAY is the story of 60's cult hero Tiny Tim who paved the way for other rock stars such as David Bowie, Prince, Iggy Pop and Boy George. An outcast from a young age, Herbert Butros Khaury's rise to stardom as Tiny Tim is the ultimate fairytale. Considered a freak by many of his peers, Tiny Tim left no one unaffected. His wedding on the Carson Show was watched by over 45 million Americans and his queer personality have been celebrated by the likes of Bob Dylan and Lady Gaga. The exclusive access to Tiny Tim’s intense diaries, the playful and powerful animations and the interviews with his family and friends, makes this film not only a captivating portrait of one of the oddest stars the world has ever seen, but also a psychological drama, examining the borderline between insanity and geniality.

"Heartbreaking and unforgettable." - Nick Allen, Roger Ebert.com

"King for a Day is never less than riveting." - Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times

"Was there any entertainer as delightfully strange as Tiny Tim? ...so kooky and yet so uncannily real." - Caroline Ely, Film Forward
