Using documentary interviews, fictional re-construction and CGI animation, director and writer Simon Pummell portrays the story of the most celebrated autobiography of madness ever written. Daniel Paul Schreber was a successful lawyer until 1893 when he was convinced he was getting messages from God and spent the next nine years in an asylum during which he wrote Memoirs Of My Nervous Illness, which earned him fame on the outside. Director Simon Pummell explores the borderline between religious vision and deluded fanatacism while holding a mirror up to society and our understanding of mental illness.
