In her first documentary film, Time of My Life, Simcha Esther (Shari) Gershan shares her very personal story of hope, healing and spirit in the face of life threatening illness.

Diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer, Simcha Esther, a vivacious mother of 4 young children, embarks on a relentless quest to heal her life. Her story takes us on a rich and rewarding journey from the depths of despair to the heights of joy. Inspiring thousands worldwide to join her odyssey through an online journal, she discovers a profound relationship with herself, humanity and G-d.

The film offers a rare glimpse into the hidden world of Orthodox Jews and particularly into the inner life of an Orthodox woman. Set against the backdrop of the NY Metro area, the feature length documentary captures the journey as Simcha Esther transforms her life as a cancer patient through humor, creativity and insight. Her raw authenticity and joie de vivre inspires thousands to join her as she navigates the physical, emotional and spiritual pathways to G-d, growth and healing.

In a world thirsting for hope, inspiration and spiritual connection, this film highlights the courageous story of one woman and her lifeline to Heaven. Anyone whose life is touched by cancer or any serious challenge will be uplifted and inspired by her story.
