Hungry: Living with Prader-Willi Syndrome: Max Seidlitz is a 13-year-old boy living with Prader-Willi Syndrome, an incurable, rare genetic disorder that is characterized by insatiable hunger, behavioral issues and lower than normal IQ.

Using black-and-white photographs, audio interviews and video, this story is a window into the life of Max and his father, Lon, his primary caregiver. Max’s life revolves around eating and meals. Due to Max’s constant hunger, Lon must lock up the kitchen between meals and keep Max busy with other activities. Includes interviews with Max and Lon and captures their remarkably close bond.
