Eric, a diagnosed schizophrenic, is faced with a critical choice — comply with traditional mental-health treatment or follow his own path to wellness. With extraordinary access to Eric and his doctor, the one-hour documentary explores both sides of the story. A solution eventually enables Eric to graduate from college and claim the recovery and a measure of the autonomy he so desperately craves.
