Gaining & Losing

Gaining and Losing follows the story of Nina, a promising prima ballerina ready to redefine her career after giving it all up to seek treatment for a life-threatening eating disorder. She gathers her two best friends to celebrate a milestone in her recovery. Mia, a support group friend, understands Nina on a personal level, having overcome similar struggles. Tara, Nina’s longtime best friend and fellow dancer, is trying to cope with the changes in their friendship, while making sense of Nina’s new way of life. When Nina’s worlds collide, who will she keep alongside her on the road to recovery?

30 million people in the United States suffer from eating disorders. Every 62 minutes 1 of them dies. Gaining and Losing focuses on the road to recovery and its many challenges. We are committed to helping shed light on the world within the eating disorder recovery support community.
