Despite the fact that there have been many changes over time in the way anorexia is viewed on a societal, cultural and medical level, the condition remains an enigma. This film is presented in the form of an international investigation into the way the condition is evolving and the way in which anorexia and its treatment take on the interpretations of their era. What is anorexia nervosa? Is it a form of hysteria or psychosis, an addiction or a borderline state? A perversion? A hormonal disorder? A neurological disorder? An eating disorder? A body-image disorder?
