OCD: The War InsideTop Rated A film by co-director Mark Pancer, who himself has OCD, brings a unique perspective and compassion to his interviews, eliciting painful stories while also exploring the causes and possible solutions of this often misunderstood condition which affects millions of people. Simultaneously heartbreaking and uplifting, sad and funny, full of love, hate, anger and courage, these stories will resonate long after the film has ended.
Andrew's OCD first appeared when he was only nine years old; his compulsions have included gnawing on walls and even streets and subway floors. With the unflagging support of his parents and sister he has found some relief through behavioral therapy.
Trisha has washed her hands until they were bloody, and has attempted suicide. SSRI medications have helped at times, but she still battles with side effects.
Marvin's OCD appeared in middle age and led to serious career and family problems; in trying to control his condition he even submitted to brain surgery, which was unsuccessful.
Grace's OCD also appeared when she was an adult. She cannot allow visitors into her house without becoming uncontrollably anxious; her obsessions have created serious problems in her relationships with her husband and young daughter.
