Production notes state: “When Sylvia accidentally takes her anorexic daughter’s antidepressant, panic and pandemonium ensue. A story about the cataclysms of depression, fear, and anxiety, and their dynamic intersections with eating disorder and suicidal ideation, The Pill is a true story written by 5 members of The Family—a comic and tragic mash-up of three generations’ take on living and dying in a post-truth dysfunctional world.”
