Review by Nine:
This drama serie is something that really made my heart hurt. I even cried alot half way the serie. People who have Spinocerebellar Degeneration will struggle with walking, talking, writing and even eating food and there is nothing to stop it.
1 Litre of Tears is based on a real story, so everything you see has happened to that person.
I could honestly talk alot more about this serie but not without spoilers.
A really good drama serie based on a real story. I'll give you a tip: Buy tissues because you will cry one litre of tears during this drama.
