An intimate look at the life of a Dutch woman, Ida, suffering from an extreme case of Lupus ( SLE ). We meet Ida and follow her through day to day life, from long train rides seeking medical help to the intimacies of her past in this monochromatic short film. As though from a first person observer, we hope to better understand a less than popular disease and the effects of its affliction.

Extra information

Lupus is an autoimmune disease, in a nutshell the auto immune system attacks the body, causing damage to the cells because it's overactive/ It can be fatal.
The doctors say Ida is a special case but she doesn't take it for flattery.
Should she be more concerned with legacy or living ?

Ida started a foundation, Plum Blossom Foundation, to gain awareness for Lupus. Its sometimes a lonely road. There are a lot of celebraties who suffer(ed) from Lupus: such as Seal, Lady Gaga, Toni Braxton, Michael Jackson, Leslie Hunt, Mercedes Yvette, Kelly Stone, Pietra Thornton, Jasmine Guy, Nick Cannon, Cori Broadus, Anna Nicole Smith.
So Join Ida in the fight against Lupus just as Beyonce, Heidi Klum, Courtney Cox, Liza Manelli, Lil' Kim, Kim Kardashian, Aaron Carter, Julia Roberts, President Bill Clinton, Patti Labelle, Charlize Theron and Will Smith are doing.
