Two best friends see their trip of a lifetime take a dark turn when one of them is struck by a mysterious affliction. Now, in a foreign land, they race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely.
This series lumps conditions with strong scientific evidence and recognized research (ME, Lyme) with others that have a much more uncertain, controversial base and treats them ALL as psychosomatic illnesses. It does not give information about the actual conditions, but rather paints a picture of "crazy, desperate people with mental illness wanting attention" that is harmful for both those with mental illness and those with physical, physiologically based conditions. The stigma of living with mental illness AND the stigma of living with misunderstood physical conditions are perpetuated by this disappointing show.
