Rating and Content Advisory


Filmmaker Ella Glendining was born with a disability so rare that she’s not yet met anyone else in the world who shares the experience of living in a body like hers. Through Facebook groups and online searches, she sets out to find if there really is anybody like her out there. Using intimate video diary entries, conversations with similarly bodied people and doctors treating her condition, Ella invites viewers to question their assumptions about normalcy while exploring what it takes to love oneself fiercely despite the pervasiveness of ableism.
