At the age of six, Emily Whitehead was diagnosed with leukemia, and the lives of her and her parents were suddenly thrust into uncertainty. Through bracingly honest interviews and home videos, Emily and her family bounce from hospital to hospital, trying to stay hopeful amidst hopelessness, and their fateful correspondence with a doctor whose research could hold the key to her survival. But time is of the essence.  Director's Bio:Ross Kauffman is the Academy Award®-winning filmmaker of the documentary Born Into Brothels.
