UNITED STATES | 97 minutes | 2017

Certain sick people are stigmatized because medicine doesn’t have any answers for their suffering. Unrest documents the puzzle of chronic fatigue syndrome. A promising future is darkened by a mysterious, medically non-existent illness. A prisoner in her own body, afflicted with chronic fatigue syndrome, Jennifer Brea films the physical and emotional impacts of her precarious health. A documentary that sparks powerful emotions while offering a ray of hope to those struggling with the illness.
