One Litre of Tears
ONE LITRE OF TEARS is the story of 18 year-old Cihan, played by Miray Daner (WOUNDED LOVE). Cihan is a happy, healthy freshman at university when strange things begin to happen. There are changes in the way she walks, and then she starts to fall down alot. Eventually she is diagnosed with an incurable brain disease. Her cerebellum will gradually deteriorate until she will no longer be able to walk, speak, write or eat by herself.
ONE LITER OF TEARS combines the thrill of young love, the sadness of mortality, and the idomitable power of family. With her mother's support, Cihan never quits fighting. Their determination to embrace life is a powerful lesson to never give up hope.
Based on the real life story of Aya Kito, who began keeping a diary when she was first diagnosed with the disease. Her diary was published shortly before her death in 1986, and it has since sold many millions of copies around the world.
