"Life in the Subaru"

Jason Uccetta comforts his son, Edan, as he talks with his wife, Meggan Smoler, in their current place of residence: their Subaru. Smoler suffers from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, which has kept them from finding a home that doesn't make her ill. The mother says, "I'm fighting to stay alive in a world I can't tolerate." She complains of blacking out, nerve pain and fatigue. She has lived in her car - with her husband and son - all summer. Smoler is crippled by encounters with routine chemicals such as pesticides, perfume and paint.
