The Scar - short doc

Ashley is a talented young actor. He was diagnosed with a very rare autoimmune disease, PSC, which affects the liver and the bile ducts. In his early twenties he had to go through a liver transplant which put his acting dreams on hold at the time. As a resilient warrior, it didn’t take long for him to get back on his feet and pursue his dreams.
With the hope of creating awareness about PSC and sharing how organ donation save lives, this short documentary tells the resilient journey of Ashley Hudson.
