The moving film follows the 'My Heart Will Go On' singer as she attempts to tackle her Stiff Person Syndrome, while showing the realities the disorder has on her career and family. During one dramatic scene, viewers watched as Celine's health declined and she endured a painful 10 minute seizure during a physical therapy session.
