Review: The Inheritance Documentary

‘The Inheritance’ is a documentary which follows Bridget Lyon and her family through their journey with Huntington’s disease. We trace their family line from an insane asylum in Aberdeenshire to the shores of Wellington. This journey, which takes us forward hundreds of years, brings us to Bridget’s mother, Judy, who is living through the final phase of the disease. This isn’t a story of acceptance or overcoming, it’s a story about love and family and how you fight to keep them in the face of a disease like Huntington’s.
