A tragedy. A love story. An extraordinary journey to the heart of the human soul.

For Jack and Alice Mann moving from the city to the coast is a dream come true, but when comedian Jack is struck down by a mysterious illness a Kafkaesque nightmare unfolds. As they navigate the maze of a healthcare system in crisis, their humour turns to despair and their lives and relationships begin to disintegrate.

Inspired by true events, Anatomised, dives deep into the heart and soul of Lyme disease – one of the fastest spreading tick-borne illnesses in the world – through the eyes of Jack and Alice. From life-changing symptoms to terrifying misdiagnoses, from conflicts over treatment to the psychological fallout of abandonment, they are certain of one thing: once bitten, you might die.

With the clock ticking, the Manns must find their own answers and brace themselves for the biggest battle of their lives – the fight for Jack’s life…

Everyone has their tipping point. What’s yours?
