The Real Unreal Story of Kids Suffering at the Margins of Medicine

Our healthcare system is broken, and it’s hurting our most vulnerable population—our children. Kids with rare diseases whose care is too complicated for today’s cookie-cutter healthcare are being tossed around from specialist to specialist, isolated and abandoned. More often than not, they live with chronic pain, but are denied access to the treatments they need, simply because their conditions are considered too complex. This results in a maze of navigating the medical system, the school system, and adds to the everyday struggles of growing up, even into early adulthood. The filmmakers behind the Oscar shortlisted exposé UNDER OUR SKIN take you into the hidden world of children coping with chronic pain, parents facing impossible choices to help them, and providers who dismiss them as "too complicated" or risk it all to save them.
