Film description

This cinematic diary of the very handsome Jason DaSilva, director, traveler and victim of multiple sclerosis at 25 years of age, shows the daily trials of an illness slowly taking away his independence. DaSilva never loses hope or optimism, submitting to increasingly experimental treatments, some of which result in heart-rending dreams of running free. The director’s religious grandmother sends him to Lourdes and is convinced this will bring on a miracle. And so, the beautiful Alice appears in his life, who does not run from his disability, but accompanies him on an electric wheelchair ride on the spiral floor of the Guggenheim Museum.
