More than hope

A film by Michael Werder

Synopsis

In Spring 2010 the parents Hanny and Christoph Poincilit learnt that their adult son and their two daughters suffer from the same very rare dease: Niemann Pick, a genetic desease that is incurable to date. Michael Werder is a friend of the family. With his camera, he has accompanied the Poincilits through ups and downs of their everyday life for the last 4 years. The film shows how the family - with lots of positive energy - cope with their fate and never give up hope of finding a cure.

«In order to pass the disease on to the children, both parents must be carriers of the gene mutation. The probability that Niemann Pick will be passed on to the children in this case is 25 percent. Christoph and Hanny have three children, all three are ill - an incredible coincidence.»
