This unusual video chronicles the summer camp experiences of a group of kids brought together by a common journey: all of them, ages six to eighteen, have cancer. More than just a documentary, this kinetic home movie portrait of wisdom and courage will help other kids with cancer and their parents to realize that they are not alone in their struggle, and that there can still be room in their lives for normal adolescent experiences.
