Then, The Boy With The Biggest Hands tells the story of eight-year-old Kaleem who suffers from an extremely rare condition that has caused him to have two giant hands. Doctors in India were baffled after his hands swelled to giant proportions. Kaleem's hands weigh 8kg each and measure 33cm from the base of his palm to the end of his middle finger. He is unable to do many basic tasks - including tying his shoelaces - and has been bullied and shunned most of his life.
