Fragile People

Fragile People gives us a unique insight into the every day life of people who live with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI or brittle bone disease). Even the tiniest movement can lead to serious fractures.

The congenital disease is frequently caused by a defect in the gene that produces type 1 collagen, an important building block of bone, and in most cases is inherited from a parent. The severity of OI depends on the specific gene defect.

The documentary follows the strong community of those with the disease, and how neither young nor old are held back by their disability.
