Director's Statement
In 2011, a health-related hell that would last nine years began. I was in Kenya filming Mother’s Wish, a film about women’s and girls’ rights.
Forty-eight hours after arriving home, my body failed. I had dozens of symptoms; fever, severe insomnia, headaches, burning sensation in the head, swelling of the stomach and glands, eye and memory problems, brain fog, balance problems, swollen ankles, tingling of the elbows, etc.
