In "Is Your Story Making You Sick?" cameras roll as eight people from all walks of life bravely confront their stories and a variety of stress-related illnesses. All eight had used prescription drugs to try to cure their illnesses, but to no avail. Over four, 4-day workshops spanning 6-months, filmmaker Frances Causey documents the changes participants experience throughout the program, following each character as they painstakingly recount their childhood trauma and negative experiences, ranging...

With a variety of tools like mindfulness meditation, we see them destroy past beliefs, welcome change and new ideas about themselves, writing a new story for themselves. The eight grew close in the intimate workshop environment, sharing their pain and helping each other through their toughest moments.
