TESS IS NOT ALONE: A USP7 STORY
a short documentary
When Tess was diagnosed with a rare mutation in her USP7 gene, her parents thought she was the only one in the world. This film tells the story of their family's search for answers, and their amazing discoveries along the way.
This film premiered at DISORDER: The Rare Disease Film Festival in Boston in October 2017. It is currently touring film festivals. Contact us if you'd like to screen it at your festival, medical conference or any other public screening.
