Kinetics: Parkour and Parkinson's

What can a teeange boy who is into free running and a middle-aged woman with Parkinson's possibly have in common? 

The desire to move...

Kinetics is based on the remarkable true story of two people seemingly at polar opposites. As Rose tries to come to terms with her diagnosis, an unlikely friendship springs up when Lukas, a rebellious teenager with ADHD and into Parkour (free running) comes tumbling into her life. But will the bond between them be strong enough when things go wrong? 

Brave, honest and humorous, Kinetics was written for the stage by actor and writer Sue Wylie based on her own experiences of being diagnosed with Parkinson's Six years ago. Kinetics raises much-needed awarness about what it is like to live with Parkinson's but its themes are universal. This is a film that is powerful and moving in which an unlikely friendship helps both characters in navigating their changing worlds.
