Through the ongoing struggle with mental illness, we see many glimpses of what “mental health” might mean, what it might mean to endure both illness and loss.

As he comes to understand his past and prepare for the future, the story comes to a close—a moving, intimate look at the trials and triumphs of a life passionately lived.
