Film Description and Trailer

When Harvard Ph.D. student Jennifer Brea is struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden, she sets out on a virtual journey to document her story as she fights a disease that medicine forgot. Doctors tell her it’s “all in her head” and determined to live, she starts filming herself and her community, a hidden world of millions confined to their homes by ME, commonly called chronic fatigue syndrome.


TAKE ACTION

Time for Unrest is a global impact campaign that seeks to strengthen the growing movement advocating for more recognition, research and funding around ME. This campaign will help bring Unrest to medical schools, leading research institutions, and communities around the world. They want to bring new scientists into the field, inspire a new generation of doctors and grow a vibrant community of patients, caregivers and allies to end the stigma and the misconceptions and accelerate the search for a cure.

Join the campaign TIME FOR UNREST

PROCEEDS OF THIS FILM WILL BE DONATED TO TIME FOR UNREST and HURRICANE RELIEF EFFORTS.
