Aged 28 and brilliant — working on her PhD at Harvard and about to marry the love of her life — Jen suffered, in a short space of time, a series of viral infections that left her incapacitated. So ill she becomes bedbound, often in excruciating pain, and looking for answers.
Disbelieved by doctors and determined to live, she turns her camera on herself and her community, a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME. Though Jen and Omar may have to accept that they will never live the life they originally dreamed about, together they find resilience, strength, and meaning in their community and each other.
Unrest is also a love story; how Jen and her new husband Omar forge their relationship while dealing with her mysterious illness is at once heartbreaking, inspiring and funny.
