You're Not You is a film about people diagnosed with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) starring Hilary Swank, Emmy Rossum and Joe Duhamel.

A heartfelt movie with a very meaningful message. The movie will be showing in theaters starting November 26.

In July–August 2014, Ice Bucket Challenge went viral on social media. It is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone's head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research.

After the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral on social media, public awareness and charitable donations to ALS charities soared. 

In the US, many people participate for the ALS Association while some individuals have opted to donate their money from the Ice Bucket Challenge to other organisations. The challenge encourages nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same. A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.

Kate is a suave, successful classical pianist just diagnosed with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease). Bec is a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together.

Yet, when Bec takes a job assisting Kate, Kate sees something special in the way Bec takes care of her. Kate and Bec find each other’s  strength through their weaknesses. You're Not You explores how two strangers can bring out the best in each other even in the midst of trials and tribulations.  This movie also gives face to the much talked about ALS and will definitely make people more compassionate with victim of the said disease.
