Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Ross McKenzie's psychiatrist told him that he would have to take lithium to control his symptoms for the rest of his life. To Ross, taking the drug daily felt like a chemical lobotomy, leaving him in a foggy, drug-induced haze. Ross ultimately decided to resolve his symptoms outside of conventional medicine. What ensued was a fifteen-year exploration into alternative treatments. This film takes us through Ross McKenzie's journey and will also tell a larger story about medication.
