Tragedy strikes, a superpower is revealed, and the hero must come to terms with their new abilities; a story arc of great comic book heroes. It’s also the real-life journey of a selfless 6-year-old cancer patient’s desire to help others.
SpiderMable — A Real Life Superhero Story is a feature-length documentary following the life of young Mable Tooke, who started her cancer battle so very early at the age of 4. In most cases that trauma and toxic treatment would serve to damage a child and make them weak, reclusive, resentful, or even worse, cause them to parish.
But for Mable, her battle brought about a need to create an alter-ego determined to fight her biggest villain … Leukemia.
