Synopsis: UNDIAGNOSED is a feature-length documentary film that brings forward remarkable cutting-edge science and compelling human drama to shine a light on a widespread but little-known issue devastating families across the world: undiagnosed illnesses.
Told through the captivating stories of 4 different families, the film explores why the medical system is failing this population and how studying these patients will advance medicine for all of humanity. Combining genetic technology, the power of community, and unwavering parental love, these families push against the ticking clock of rapid degeneration to find answers.
UNDIAGNOSED is the culmination of 9 years of work by Dr. Katia Moritz, the director and an undiagnosed patient herself — supported by an extraordinary team that includes Oscar and Emmy winning filmmakers, world-renown scientists, and leading genetic technology companies.
Over the course of this documentary, we meet and speak with a dozen individuals, who talk unflinchingly about death and loss, but also about love and connection, about accomplishment and meaning. Through the touching, humorous, and reflective stories and insights of the “cast” of “The 90s Club”, we can all gain some perspective for our own lives as we grow older.
