This film is for all kids born with bladder exstrophy! It explains the congenital disorder in an understandable and respectful way and is a useful aid for parents, family, carers and teachers. The film also wants to encourage affected kids to be self-confident, brave and curious - just like kids should be!

The film is based on the German children's book DER BESTE TAUCHER DER WELT. Available here.
