About the Movie
Childhood leukemia, which accounts for 30% of childhood cancer, affects the lives of three in every 100,000 children. Of those affected, 20% do not survive, and these statistics have remained unchanged for over 20 years. But there’s a way we can improve this outcome: through research. Director Penélope Cruz, with the support of the Unoentrecienmil Foundation and VICEROY, offers us a glimpse of the reality of childhood leukemia – how it alters the lives of afflicted children, along with that of their siblings, their families, and others around them. Her examination begins around a table, at a meal where parents of children who have suffered this disease come together to share their experience. The primary objective of “Soy Unoentrecienmil” is to raise awareness about the vital role of research in ending this disease. Children who have lived through this illness, their families, their doctors and other researchers testify that, with just a little help from many, we could change the world.
