Synopsis/ Description
Schizophrenia. One word, but conjures up multiple connotations – Mad. Incurable. Violent. Suicidal. Chemical imbalances.Crazy. A lifelong condition. Inevitable dependency on Medicines.Dark.Terrible. The Film takes us through the story of 30-year old Reshma Valliappan and charts out her journey of eventual triumph. It takes a controversial and contrarian view towards recovery from schizophrenia, proposing that the only treatment that can work is one where the so-called ‘patient’ is encouraged and empowered to become an equal partner in the process of healing
