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 it’s core, a love story. How Jen and her new husband forge their relationship while dealing with her mysterious illness is at once heart breaking, inspiring and funny.
