A visual, brutally honest story on life with ME/CFS and new research.

It was a project birthed in hope. Pal Schaathun, a Norwegian filmmaker would document what he hoped might be the end of chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). That, unfortunately, turned out not to be but Schaathun ended up documenting – in strikingly beautiful fashion – the next best thing. He managed to vividly portray the needs, hopes and desires of a community desperately yearning for health as it embarked on its first real shot for success.
