Stroke

Every Minute Counts

A film by Ingo Knopf

Every minute a person in France or Germany suffers a stroke. Around the world, 15 million people per year become victims - with disastrous consequences. Nearly half of all stroke victims suffer from severe brain damage for the rest of their lives.

Our documentary shows the latest cutting-edge treatments and proves that stroke is not just a problem of older men. More and more young people suffer a stroke - and more than 55% of all victims are women. The film features a 25-year-old student and her successful struggle to get her life back after a stroke...
