“39 Pounds of Love” is the inspirational and humorous true story of
a remarkable man and a remarkable journey. Ami Ankilewitz was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) -- an extremely rare and often fatal form of muscular atrophy that severely limits his physical growth and movement. Ami, who weighs only 39 pounds, works in Israel as a 3D animator creating a beatiful love story. His zest for life make this film a heart-felt and beautiful study of how a human being can create and love. This is a deeply emotional film.
