Jews of central and eastern European ancestry face a higher risk of Crohn’s disease. Meet Dana, a feisty, funny, and charming 25-year-old Jewish girl at a crossroads… but not the kind you might expect. Dana battles with Crohn’s Disease every single day. Dana depends on intravenous nutrition, constant vigilance and a wicked sense of humor to stay alive. Now she faces the daunting task of deciding how she wants to live the rest of her life, coping with the limitations and rigors of her current routine or taking a leap of faith on a complicated transplant that could give her a chance at the normal life she has never known. “Dana’s probably the funniest and most lighthearted person you’ll see on screen this year.” —Dish Mag
