Brain on Fire

At first glance Susannah (Chloƫ Grace Moretz) seems to be on the right track. She is just starting out as a journalist with The New York Post, is happily dating musician Stephen (Thomas Mann), and her relationship with her parents (Richard Armitage, Carrie-Anne Moss) is great. But something is wrong with her. Again and again she imagines things, suffers from mood swings, also has mental dropouts. While one doctor does not dare to diagnose at all and others see it as a purely mental illness, Susannah's illness is becoming ever more terrifying - until the parents themselves go in search of a specialist.
