TEASER

Pitch: I have a genetic medical condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome type 3 (EDS). This documentary explores how it affects my day-to-day life, looking at what the near future may hold while being on the road to recovery. This film shows the process of strengthening joints in the hope of preventing the need for patella reconstructive surgery. I experience frequent dislocations, fatigue and unexplained bruising which are constant set-backs. Can determination and hard work in training prevent an operation that requires breaking and realigning bones? The struggles and exhaustion caused by the disorder over an average day is demonstrated by the ‘Spoons Theory’, which gives an indication of the physical and mental stress the condition causes.
