Medical Anomaly

Maurice Simpson lives comfortably in a small town with his wife and children, but something about Maurice sets him apart from everybody else. Since childhood, he's been disfigured by massive facial tumors caused by Neurofibromatosis. Amazingly, an anonymous donor has offered to pay for facial reconstruction but surgery to remove Maurice's tumors will put his life on the line.

Maurice's struggle is documented in My Brand New Face, the first in a series of striking documentaries that follow fascinating medical anomalies.

The 6-part series documents the struggle and accomplishments of a number of unique human beings. The 8 Limbed Boy follows the life of a young Indian boy with a one in a million life-threatening condition, a parasitic twin. We meet Deepak who was born with four extra limbs growing out of his chest threatening his very existence. Deepak's parents are desperate to discover treatments and go on a journey that could change their lives forever. My Skin Could Kill Me profiles two British families whose daughters were born with the rare skin disorder Harlequin Ichthyo and in The Boy with Bloody Tears we meet 17 year old Calvino Inman who has been regularly crying blood for the past two years and no-one can explain why this happens.
