"Moving. Educational. Inspiring. This film gives anyone insight to what it's really like to live with OCD."

Chief, OCD & Related Disorders, Icahn School of Medicine
"There are things the medical profession has failed to explain to me about OCD that have been summed up by these incredible kids in under 30 minutes."
