“Jaw-dropping stuff."

“The film powerfully insists on giving a voice to victims whose greatest challenge, apart from their symptoms, is surmounting a world of indifference." - Daniel M. Gold, The New York Times

Twenty-eight year-old Jennifer Brea is working on her PhD at Harvard and months away from marrying the love of her life when she gets a mysterious fever that leaves her bedridden and looking for answers. Disbelieved by doctors yet determined to live, she turns her camera on herself and discovers a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME, commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. At its core, Unrest is a love story. Together, Jen and her new husband, Omar, must find a way to build a life and fight for a cure. Their struggle to forge their relationship while dealing with her mysterious illness is at once heartbreaking, inspiring and funny.
