Not wanting to spoil the film for others, i highly recommend seeing this in the theaters and with a loved one.


Prior to the 26th week of maturation, the fetal brain is particularly susceptible to various toxins whose effects can ultimately hinder normal development.Spastic triplegia, meanwhile, involves three limbs (such as one arm and two legs, or one leg and two arms, etc.); spastic diplegia affects two limbs (commonly just the legs), spastic hemiplegia affects one or another entire side of the body (left or right); and spastic monoplegia involves a single limb.Spastic quadriplegia can be detected by the abnormal development of motor skills in children.Distonia, or lasting muscle contractions and tightness, is also often experienced by those affected by spastic quadriplegia.These involuntary muscle contractions may affect the development of structural muscle around the hip and lead to hip dysplasia and dislocation, making it difficult to sit.A difference in blood types between the mother and the fetus can also initiate a problematic immune response and cause brain damage.

Severe jaundice, can also lead to brain damage and spastic quadriplegia due to a buildup of bilirubin in the blood.

Symptoms can present themselves as early as three months but are generally seen before the child reaches two years of age.

Some warning signs include: a child of more than two months who has stiff legs that scissor and is unable to control his or her head, and a child of more than twelve months who has not developed the ability to crawl or stand.

The combination of these symptoms often makes it difficult for the patients to walk as well.

Although the arms and legs of patients are often stiff, the neck is usually limp due to the lack of voluntary muscle control.

Stimulation of the muscles involved can treat some forms of nerve damage, depending on what the issue is.
