Synopsis >

A Life Without Pain -- Do you think a pain-free life sounds great? Think again. A LIFE WITHOUT PAIN is an exploration into the day-to-day lives of three children who literally feel no pain. Three-year-old Gabby from Minnesota, 7-year old Miriam from Norway and 10-year-old Jamilah from Germany have a genetic defect so rare that it is shared by only a few hundred people in the world. Their parents must watch their every move, but even their vigilance hasn't shielded the girls from many serious, life-altering injuries. As filmmaker Melody Gilbert follows these families coping with this enormous challenge, we learn that pain is a gift that nobody wants, but none of us can do without.
