Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Actor Joe Pantoliano steps behind the camera to direct this documentary exploring the devastating effects of mental illness, and the steps being taken to eradicate it. One in four Americans suffer from mental illness, a disease that ultimately affects four in five Americans. But while doctors remain optimistic they will someday discover a cure for many mental illnesses, the fact remains that people diagnosed with such diseases still suffer from a serious social stigma. In this film, Pantoliano attempts to shatter that stigma by speaking with researchers working towards a cure for such maladies as clinical depression and ADHD, and encouraging the people affected by those disorders to speak out about their struggles and experiences.
