Storyline

November 14th 2007, the UN declares diabetes a worldwide epidemic, launching an annual global awareness event, World Diabetes Day. On that day, 16 year old filmmaker Katia from Montreal began a journey now called ''Sweet 16'', chronicling Katia's highs and lows; as she and her father/filmmaker turn the lens on a disease that currently touches over 300 million people globally. Sweet 16 offers a fresh perspective into a silent killer, with a focus on teen issues of body image, peer pressure, in the context of this increasingly prevalent disease. But Sweet is not a medical documentary. Part road movie, part filmed diary, Sweet 16 is a frank human portrayal of what it tales to challenge health issues during critical rites of passage into adulthood. Written by Anonymous
