Against the tide, is a story of Albert, a 21-year-old young man, is diagnosed with his third cancer, but this time he is determined to battle it on his own terms.
Armed with just a camera, he starts recording his own experiences and sharing everything he is going through. And so “Vivir a Contracorriente” is born.
“Vivir a Contracorriente” (“Living against the tide”) quickly becomes a social movement that aims at breaking with the existing taboos around cancer and sharing 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. He doesn’t want to survive on a bed, he wants to embrace all life has to offer.
This widespread social phenomenon will bring Albert’s fight to the hearts of thousands worldwide.
