"We cannot learn without pain." -Aristotle
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 just one 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 we follow these families coping with this
enormous challenge, we learn that pain is really a gift that no one wants, but
none of us can do without.
