Synopsis

This is the inspiring true story of Augusto and Michaela Odone, two parents who refused to give up when doctors tell them their son Lorenzo has a rare nerve disease, adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), which is untreatable and always fatal. As they watch their boy worsen until he can barely communicate with them, Augusto and Michaela throw themselves into amateur medical research, combing libraries and badgering professionals until they hit upon the seemingly-impossible, a cure - but will it be enough to save Lorenzo?

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
