Description


Lauren Dow's emotionally driven debut delves into the mind of one woman through her journey of recovery, growth, and survival.

"A story that needs to be told." - Taylor Fraser, Award Winning Director of the Foreward Podcast

A lot can happen in seven days, especially for someone with mental illness.

Amelia is about to turn 30, but instead of celebrating, she is overpowered by her battle against anxiety and depression driven by the inner voices of her little monster-her eating disorder.

But as days progress, the mundane becomes the unmanageable. She self-medicates with alcohol and sinks lower into vivid flashbacks of her and Dominic backpacking the world together. One day he went to Guatemala, the next he vanished like a ghost, leaving Amelia to remain in the depths of her eating disorder alone. That is, until she meets Emmett, her new neighbor with schizoaffective disorder she's deemed as her guardian angel from afar.

Based on a true story, In Body I Trust dives into the mind of Amelia as she struggles to swim from the deepest, darkest parts of herself back to the surface, before it's too late.
