Carol White is an L.A. housewife in the late 1980s who comes down with a debilitating illness. After the doctors she sees can give her no clear diagnosis, she comes to believe that she has frighteningly extreme environmental allergies. A prescient commentary on self-help culture, as a metaphor for the AIDS crisis, as a drama about class and social estrangement, and as a horror film about what cannot be seen.

A mysterious environmental illness, a woman comes undone, 80s shoulder pads, what’s not to love?

The 80's hair and fashion alone is worth the watch.

You will also watch someone's health (and life) unravel with no proven cause or help for it.

There are no answers given, only questions raised.

No clear conclusions here; provocative social observations.
