This NEW feature-length film focuses on the lives of women, girls and boys caught in the downward spiral of eating disorders and their struggle to regain a sense of self-compassion and healing. The documentary addresses body image; a lack of connection with one’s physical and emotional being; and the need to delve deep within one’s self to find the systemic triggers of this disease .
The film began shooting in January of 2015 and will tour the state in the spring of 2016.
