The Law of Averages tells the story of the very ordinary Bloggs family. “Every week’s the same,” narrates 15 year old Joanna Bloggs whose mother, Joan, brushes her teeth the recommended three minutes, “no more, no less.” She even has a special tooth-brushing timer. But their lives change forever when Joanna’s brother Joe is diagnosed with a serious kidney disease and requires a transplant.
The ﬁlm explores the angst and frustration the family goes through as Joe’s parents are found to be unsuitable as donors and his sister is rejected as a donor for being too young. Unless a suitable donor kidney is found from someone who has died, Joe will die too.
