What would you do if you were 29 and found you may only have a few years to live?

So Much So Fast is about the remarkable events set in motion when Stephen Heywood discovers he has ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and his brother Jamie becomes obsessed with finding a cure.

From Oscar-nominated directors Steven Ascher and Jeanne Jordan comes a black-humored cliffhanger of romance, outsider science and the meaning of time.
