Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.) is a highly misunderstood neurological disorder which may result in major social problems for children and adults. This video allows the viewer to feel the frustration, the lack of attention and the confusion of A.D.D. Through the re-creation of true life situations and intriguing camera work the viewer can actually feel what it is like to have A.D.D. This docu-story features perspectives from families, a doctor, an adult, and an educator, and includes accounts compiled from those with A.D.D. from all over the nation.
