16-year-old Mithun Chauhan suffers from an extremely rare genetic condition. which has left him with large swollen lumps all over his face and body. The condition known as neurofibroma affects just one in 33,000 people and causes tumours to grow along the nerve endings. Doctors have never seen a case as extreme as Mithun’s and have a medical challenge ahead. Mithun’s family believe he was 'cursed' by the gods and have performed rituals to try and cure him. The growths around Mithun’s face are so severe that he struggles to eat. see and breathe. In this heartfelt film Mithun undergoes major surgery to not only transform his face but also hopefully change his life for good. Series 1: 1x60 | HD | 2017
