AGAINST THE TIDE

This is the story of Albert and how “Living against the tide” helped him, his beloved ones and thousands of people to deal with the cancer.

SYNOPSIS

Albert, a young man aged 21, is diagnosed with his third cancer and this time he is determined to battle it again, but in his own way.

With nothing but a camera, he starts recording his own experiences and explaining what he is going through, and so “Vivir a Contracorriente” is born.
“Vivir a Contracorriente” (“Living against the tide”) promptly becomes a social movement that breaks with the existing taboos around cancer and shares a new perspective of the disease with the world, a new way of facing cancer based on communication, a healthy lifestyle and, especially, an insatiable will to live, instead of fighting to survive on a bed.

This Internet-spread social phenomenon will bring Albert’s fight to the hearts of thousands of people worldwide
