About this work

Description

At two years old several vast tumours spread over the face of Indonesian boy Novemthree, blinding him and leaving him with breathing, speaking and eating problems. At five he had the largest facial tumour in medical history. This documentary charts fifteen weeks in which four complex operations are performed to remove growths, restore his eyesight - and save his life. Contains footage of the operations.
