Jennifer Brea is about to marry the love of her life when she’s struck down by a mysterious fever that leaves her so ill she cannot even stand. When doctors tell her “it’s all in her head,” 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. Together, Jen and her new husband, Omar, must find a way to build a life and fight for a cure.
