The sun is our source of life, but for sufferers of ‘Leopard’s Syndrome’, it represents death. A rare genetic disease, the condition causes sufferers to be covered in thousands of freckle-like skin spots, which make them highly sensitive to the sun. Even brief exposure to daylight can cause skin cancer. This heartbreaking and beautifully realised doc follows 5 girls grappling with the disease and a life of terrible restrictions and early mortality.
