It's impossible not to be moved by the story of this little great warrior and persistent struggle by parents who did everything to see significant improvement in your child, to challenge the scientific community of the time. Especially the father of Lorenzo, who did not give up until you find a treatment for your child and remained strong despite all what happened. Simply one of the best movies based on real events.
