About the film…
Working on her Ph.D. at Harvard, twenty-eight year-old Jennifer Brea is months away from marrying the love of her life when she gets a mysterious fever that leaves her bedridden and looking for answers. Discounted 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, (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), commonly known as chronic fatigue syndrome.
At its core, Unrest is a powerful 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.
