“Make A Film Foundation teams children who have serious or life-threatening illnesses with film industry professionals to help them create short film legacies. These children write and star in their own films with the help of famous directors, writers and actors.”
Elijah Wood star of “The Hobbit” was one of the team members who mentored Clay through the film making process.
While a medical team is battling to save his life in surgery, Clay fictionally travels into the animated world of his body to fight against characters that represent his disease.
