SEVEN STORIES. ONE GOAL. A GLOBAL COMMUNITY.

Directed by Josh Taft

ALIVE & WELL is a documentary about the human condition, shown through seven stories of people affected by Huntington’s Disease (HD).

ALIVE & WELL tells the story of seven people engulfed, enraged, embattled and empowered by the effects of one of the ‘unknown’ hereditary diseases: Huntington’s.

Whether they are a renowned scientist battling to find a cure, a young woman who dreams of bearing a child, or a recognized television personality, each character is coming to terms with the reality of Huntington’s Disease in their lives.

This is ultimately a film about people who are looking for hope in their lives. Through seven stories, we bear witness to the questions, struggles and many triumphs in daily life with a chronic disease.

An honest portrayal unfolds through these seven stories, as each person is faced with the challenge of living with a chronic disease instead of dying with one.

Original Score composed by Saunder Stenfert Jurriaans and Daniel Charles Bensi.
