About this work
A film about the problems and prejudice young people face in society with their epilepsy. Footage of a man having a seizure on the ground; the narrator outlines that this scene is unusual. Two young women who have found that their epilepsy is not well controlled by drugs outline some of the issues they face with their 'handicap'. A school boy, David, who takes the appropriate medication has his epilepsy well controlled, although his seizures are not severe. How people should help someone having a seizure is suggested. A doctor researching epilepsy from Bristol lists the different types of epilepsy. Evaluating how different young people are treated reveals many problems with people with epilepsy face in the workforce.
