“Recovered” is the story of a young woman returning to life after months of treatment, combatting her struggles with anorexia. In the aftermath of a mental and physical healing process, her new task becomes readjusting to the life she knew before, and to the people that she left behind. It is an honest and unfiltered observation of what it is like to deal with life-changing mental illness - and the choice to actively pursue recovery.
