Uschi Bökesch has multiple sclerosis. This autobiographical documentary is her "video book". In spite of serious illness it is possible to carve out a full and creative life. A film about living with MS and disability in Berlin. Without pathos, the film shows that disability and illness are a challenge, and adapting to ever new circumstances can be very stressful, even scary. Although Bökesch talks about severe times of her life with MS, her dry humor shines through. Her "video book" developed out of conversations with interview partners. The film is divided into ten chapters. They include: symptoms;drugs; chemotherapy; cannabis; and diet.
