Charlie suffers from cataplexy, a symptom of narcolepsy that causes sudden bouts of paralysis whenever he experiences strong emotions — in particular, joy. He develops a variety of techniques to deny himself too much pleasure and happiness, but they’re put to the ultimate test when he falls in love.
User Reviews: Thank you for updating the description to show it is a symptom of Narcolepsy. I am excited to see this movie as a PWNWC. (Person with Narcolepsy with Cataplexy). It won’t rob my joy either!
