Beneath The Surface - A Film About Living with MS, Building Community and What It Can Mean

Beneath The Surface tells the stories of people in America living with multiple sclerosis (MS) at various stages of progression, who open their homes and their hearts, share what it felt like at diagnosis, and how dreams survive albeit most quite altered from "original plans." MS is different for everyone and we see it all here: the strength and grace and for some people, depression and loneliness.

We encounter patients, doctors (sometimes during clinical exams), the inside of an MRI machine, well-known and less well-known people, spouses and even one newly-met grandson. The film takes us from the personal level to a more universal consideration on stigma, resilience and above all, hope. Importantly, we see how community and connection - in real life or virtual - can make a difference for people with MS every day.
