    The main character is based off people with multiple chemical sensitivity, but given the close similarity, not surprisingly the main character actually seems like she has salicylate sensitivity: like she does poorly on a fruit diet and doesn't seem to do a whole lot better in nature than in a polluted city. The movie takes place in 1987 so don't expect there to be any real understanding of what she's going through and how to deal with it, and it's also more of an art house film so it's about a lot more than just MCS and you kind of have to watch it a few times to pick up on all the social context to it. Anyway, I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it. I didn't really like it the first time I watched it, because it doesn't really turn out the way you hope, but I feel like it's super accurate to the way things were in that time and a good form of social criticism.
