Albert (21) is faced with a third bout of cancer, and this time he is determined to battle in his own way. 
With nothing but a camera, he starts recording his own experiences and recounting his trials and tribulations, and so Against The Tide is born. Albert's story soon becomes a social movement, breaking away from existing taboos surrounding cancer and sharing a new perspective regarding the disease with the world: a way of facing cancer based on communication, a healthy lifestyle and an insatiable will to live instead of fighting to survive while bedridden.
This social Internet phenomenon will bring Albert's fight to the hearts of thousands of people worldwide.
