Go Heal Yourself
105 min | English/German Documentary
Director: Yasmin C. Rams
Suffering from Epilepsy, director Yasmin C. Rams sets out to find an alternative cure for her debilitating disease. She does this against the wishes of her strong-headed father, who has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and believes all alternative medicine is quackery.
On her path, Yasmin meets inspiring people from all around the world who have become symptom-free of their illnesses. However, as time goes by, she must learn that this route is not as easy as just taking a pill. Suffering more and more seizures, Yasmin has to decide whether this idealistic dream is really worth the risk.
