  • Log-line

    For the first time, a centre for the treatment of eating disorders has opened its doors to allow observation of psychotherapy sessions. We record stories of the tragic attempt to dominate one’s own body, stories of unease, disquiet, suffering and feelings of inadequacy, but also stories of hope. The film is shot entirely at the Centre for the Treatment of Eating Disorders in Rome.
