Episode 1 of 1
More from this Series

In L&B, we witness three women from three different Countries Amy, Havi, and Corine cope with one such disease: Lymphangiolelomyomatosis or LAM for short. The difficulties, uncertainties, and isolation derived from living with this disease are relieved by the measures of joy that are still to be found in life even under these circumstances. Against all expectations, the disease becomes a great battle that leads these women to reinvent themselves and their lives with greater meaning than ever before. They teach us profound lessons about what is important in our own lives, how we face imminent mortality, and whether happiness is still possible despite being afflicted with such an illness.
