It is a gritty tale of transformation, depicting from the inside some of the most powerful experiences a human mind can endure. It questions conventional methods of treating psychosis and point towards a radical vision where diagnosis of mental illness makes allowances for spiritual growth and transformation rather than simply treating a perceived brain chemical imbalance.
