    • Synopsis
    • Henry Long (Joey Kelin, "The Vow", "American Gangster") was born with a rare condition that leaves him unable to feel physical pain. Life for him is a daily struggle, never knowing when he might become seriously injured without realizing it, or worse, die from an internal injury he never knew existed. He lives in a constant state of fear and is completely alienated from those around him who cannot relate to his daily struggles, including the woman he desperately wants to be with.
      Barricading himself in a world of science, Henry has dedicated his life to finding a cure so that he can one day know what it’s like to feel ‘normal.’ When he discovers a promising drug that he is unable to obtain on his own, he gets involved with a dangerous scientist with a dark past and his own secret agenda. Henry must decide if his need for normalcy is worth paying the ultimate price before it’s too late.
      Based on actual medical science, Painless is a compelling look at the dark side of life with a rare condition and the challenges both symptomatic and social that people with these conditions face.
