Twenty-eight year old Jennifer Brea is working on her PhD at Harvard, months away from marrying the love of her life, when she gets a mysterious fever that leaves her bedridden and looking for answers. Determined to live, she turns the camera on herself and her community – a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME, commonly called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

At its core this film is a love story as Jen and her new husband forge their relationship and deal with her mysterious illness - heart-breaking, inspiring and funny.
