39 POUNDS OF LOVE is the inspirational and humorous story of Ami Ankilewitz, a 3D animator in Israel whose bodily motion is limited to a single finger on his left hand. At birth, Ami was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy, later diagnosed as Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), and was predicted to survive only to the age of six. Now, thirty years later, he leaves the woman he loves and returns to the United States to confront the childhood doctor who predicted his early demise. Along the way, he comes to terms with a major incident from his past and pursues a lifelong dream: to ride a Harley Davidson. 39 POUNDS OF LOVE is an emotional roller coaster, a fascinating, humorous and truly inspirational ride through life with someone who embodies the very term, carpe diem ("seize the day").
