THE LAST CLEAN SCAN
A DOCUMENTARY SHORT ABOUT LIFE AFTER CANCER
Premiers Fall 2018
In June 2014 Amy graduated from her master’s program and was well on her way to pursuing a career in trauma psychology. She was working with patients from around the world, victims of torture, refugees, natural disaster survivors. She was strong, confident. She was healthy. Eight weeks later she was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma. She was given less than 10% chance of survival.
This is the story of what happened after Amy beat the odds.
It’s the story of a safety net being pulled from beneath you, of the abyss into which you find yourself free falling when you do in fact survive. It’s the story of emotional and mental turmoil, of Amy seeing in herself the same unfathomable trauma triggers that she had once diagnosed in her clients. It’s a story of looking for help, finding none, and fighting for your life after winning the fight of your life.
