Post-film discussion organized by the Bateman Horne Center with Dr. Lucinda Bateman (BHC Medical Director), Dr. Suzanne Vernon (BHC Research Director), moderated by Rob Ence (BHC Executive Director).

Twenty-eight-year-old Jennifer Brea is working on her PhD at Harvard and 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 her camera on herself and her community – a hidden world of millions confined to their homes and bedrooms by ME, commonly called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Unrest is, at its core, a love story.  How Jen and her new husband forge their relationship while dealing with her mysterious illness is at once heartbreaking, inspiring and funny.
