65_RedRoses is one of the most emotionally stirring documentaries I have ever watched and is now free to watch online to Canadian residents. It tells the story of 23-year old Eva Markvoort’s brave and ongoing battle with Cystic Fibrosis – a disease that is ravaging her lungs – as she awaits a double-lung transplant.
Through the Internet, Eva (a.k.a. 65_redroses when online) meets two other young women who also face a drastically reduced lifespan due to CF. They provide each other with the peer support each needs; such a battle cannot be overcome without the support of family and friends.
The film is an unflinching look at what it means to be young and facing death and is also a remarkable tale of courage and a true source of inspiration.
