The lives of four people with bi-polar disorder.
Living with bi-polar disorder: this documentary explores the lives of four people living under the shadow of one of the most commonly misunderstood and diagnosed mental illnesses, bipolar disorder. The young mother, the party boy, the executive and the teacher all share a common goal: to live a normal life. We see their personal struggles as they each cope with the emotional highs and lows of the disorder. Through hard work and the hands-on support of their psychiatrist, they all begin to learn how to manage the extreme mood swings and to lead productive, balanced lives.
