Jennifer Brea, a Harvard PhD student, is about to marry the love of her life when she suddenly becomes severely ill. Confined to the private space of her bedroom, she seeks answers and community by grabbing a camera and filming her darkest moments as she is derailed by M.E., commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A love story and an international journey into the history, culture and gendering of medicine, Unrest
reveals the tenacity of a patient community that refuses to give up.
In conjunction with its theatrical release, Film Sprout launched Unrest on a national grassroots tour in the fall and winter of 2017.
