We all forget things from time to time. Birthdays, names, whether we’ve met someone before. But what if you couldn’t remember anything after just a few hours, often forgetting to take off your clothes before getting in the bath, or couldn’t even recognize your own reflection? And how much tougher is it if you’re just a teenager? We normally associate memory loss with older people, but around the UK scores of teenagers are battling with severe amnesia. This film follows a number of young amnesiacs in their day-to-day lives and for the first time, reveals the huge challenges they face; from school and sports, to shopping and relationships, showing how things most people take for granted are a heartbreaking struggle for these young people. A BBC Production.
