Having suffered from mental illness, I know how terrifying, bewildering, and isolating the experience can be," says Hilary Dean. "Even after years of recovery, I continue my attempts to somehow process it." Dean directs this eye-opening film while at the same time discussing her challenges candidly - with an agile, disarming sense of humor - before the camera. Using clever animation sequences to illustrate insights, Dean provides detailed descriptions of the hallucinations and disturbing life situations brought on by her delusional disorder. She also generously shares screen time with mental health professionals who provide expert commentary, and with other people who have learned to cope with mental illness. The result is a rich narrative that addresses the deeply entrenched cultural stigma as well as the inner fears and personal hurdles facing those who live with mental illness.
