Our full-length, 60-min documentary tells the personal stories of five individuals living with Parkinson’s disease and highlights the New Zealand research effort to develop therapies that can stop or slow disease progression. It also breaks down some of the myths and misunderstandings surrounding Parkinson’s disease.  A cure is a very real possibility, it is just a matter of when.

We’re very proud and extremely grateful to all those involved in sharing their personal stories to help educate other New Zealanders on this emerging pandemic.  Help us to accelerate the timeframe towards a cure by joining us in our mission and supporting research done the Kiwi way because sadly their stories may also become your story.

Please join our mission, support our dream, and provide people living with Parkinson’s, as well as all those who will one day go on to be diagnosed with Parkinson’s, the hope they deserve as we work towards finding a cure.
