German actress Kathrin Spielvogel was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, at the age of 34. The treatment called for the removal of her right breast and intensive chemotherapy. As someone who has made her living in front of the camera, Spielvogel decided to document the process of fighting the cancer and began to film a video diary. In 2008, friend and filmmaker Nicholas Feustel edited the material into a cohesive whole, which captures Spielvogel’s pain, doubt and ultimately, her triumph in refusing to give in.
