Description:Tin Soldiers is the deeply personal story of people afflicted with one of the world's most rare conditions and the search to identify those still living in the dark—the victims whose symptoms defy the understanding of those around them. The film travels from the dusty streets of South African townships to Brazil, the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, documenting the experiences of patients and their families as they walk differing paths, while sharing a common purpose: to prevail. Interwoven with the personal stories of challenge and triumph is the narrative of medical science, highlighting the global effort to unlock the mystery that is FOP, as well as the search for those sufferers who remain undiagnosed. Tin Soldiers is an independent documentary film that embarks on an unprecedented search for the unidentified victims, as it gives voice to FOP warriors in the telling of their stories—shining a light on a little-known condition in some of the world's most under-served communities.
