Did you know that every 62 minutes at least one person dies as a direct result from an eating disorder? Did you know that eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness? Solo SEE ME is an analysis of a person struggling with this problem of the 21st century. It shows a person, whose body and mind are both destroyed by the lack of acceptance of her own appearance. It conducts the audience through her emotional states, attempts to fight the disease and herself, and also discovers her restless interior.
