My Shocking Story 2

Image 1 / 10

Follow the awe-inspiring and emotional journeys taken by people battling with extraordinary medical conditions as they try to lead normal lives. Meet 45-year old Vicki who has one leg so out of proportion to her body that it doesn't even look like a part of her. And watch the story of Indonesian fisherman Dede who has tree-like branches growing out of his arms and legs in place of hands and toes. These people are desperate to find a cure for their condition. For some of them it's a matter of life or death. For others, it's about being accepted and learning to live in the body they have been given. This intimate and in-depth look into these extraordinary lives is shocking, but ultimately uplifting, as they all try to come to terms with their situation, and live their lives as happily as they can.
