Jennifer Brea was a Harvard PhD student soon to be engaged when she was struck down by a mysterious fever that left her bedridden. When doctors told her it was "all in her head," her response was to film other sufferers from her bed, gradually deploying crews globally to document patients that medicine forgot. Unrest gives voice to the millions suffering from M.E. or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
