Documentary about Dillon, an 11-year-old boy who suffers from an aggressive form of neurofibromatosis, a disease that causes tumours to form in his nervous system. His leg has grown out of proportion to his tiny frame, and he's found it hard to get around, never mind joining in with other kids. In his mind there's only one way to cure the problem - amputation. But can a young boy persuade the medical establishment to cut his leg off, and is it even in his best interests?
