PSA to reduce epilepsy stigma
Synopsis: We are introduced to a very pretty and interesting girl who has epilepsy, but isn't what people expect. We see her intelligence, her drive, and her good heart. She makes us want to be that confident and want to get to know her as we, the viewers, watch excerpts from her life and hear what she has to say about a condition surrounded by a lot of harmful misconceptions.
