Pieces of Me
PIECES OF ME puts a human face to the accelerating scientific advancements in genetic identification. The science of genetics is expanding faster than cures or treatments, so what do people do when diagnosed with a faulty gene, knowing that cures are still far behind?
Three sisters, young, vibrant and genetically flawed, face a decision that could potentially save their lives and yet cuts to the very core of their femininity. Follow their personal journey as they confront life altering decisions after being diagnosed with the BRCA2 breast cancer gene.
An intimate reflection, PIECES OF ME also explores the social and ethical implications of having the knowledge of a genetic pre-disposition to a disease.
