Living in a Body follows Hal Walker, an internet-famous musician living with ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome). The film explores the coping mechanisms he uses in his daily life as his illness worsens, rendering him increasingly bed-bound. Hal uses his remaining strength to reflect on his career as a musician and play his many instruments. This brings up his battles with addiction, his search for faith and sobriety, his complicated relationships with women, and his experience being a father to his only daughter, Hallie. The film weaves together his music and stories to paint a complete portrait of a man searching for meaning as he loses his ability to do all the things he loves.
