Sick Girls

What does the rise in the diagnosis of ADHD and other mental illnesses since the 90s have to do with the efficiency-driven and dumbed-down civilisation in which the grid of normal is becoming ever narrower? And who actually determines what is normal and what is not? With five different female ADHD sufferers, SICK GIRLS gets to the bottom of these questions and gives insight into the personal difficulties of living with ADHD. The director Gitti Grüter themself examines the own ADHD and interacts with their protagonists partly in front of and partly from behind the camera, addressing chaos, lack of concentration, relationship problems, addiction, depression, insomnia and impulsivity.
