    “OverLove” tells the story of the 17-year-old Olivia’s struggle with anxiety and OCD. Olivia is in high school, and she appears to be living a seemingly “normal” life, where her free time is split evenly between family and friends. Nevertheless, she fights a daily battle with the underlying anxiety and the overwhelming OCD, which is dominated by the thoughts of hurting her younger brother, Noa. “OverLove” is a film about mental illness, the struggle of living with anxiety and OCD, and the surrounding world’s attempt to understand a complicated psychological illness. It is the portrayal of a young girl’s struggle between seeking comfort from her mother while maintaining her independence.
