Summary

Documentary looking at the life of Brooke Greenberg, who stopped growing and ageing when she was five owing to a condition so rare that doctors named it Syndrome X. No one knows why she failed to develop, but academics now believe that her genes may offer a new insight into the ageing process. The film also draws on the extensive home video and photographic archive of the Baltimore family to chart the highs and lows they have gone through as a result of Brooke's unique condition.
