Summary
"An official selection of the Sundance Film Festival, Life According to Sam follows one family's courageous fight to save their only son from a rare and fatal aging disease. Directed by Oscar winners Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine (Inocente), this highly personal and life-affirming journey is propelled by the captivating presence of Sam Berns. Funny, perceptive and fiercely intelligent, 16-year old Sam is the catalyst for his physician parents' relentless drive to discover a medical breakthrough that may one day shed light on unlocking the aging process in us all."--Container
