When Jack begins to spin totally out of control on a regular basis it was then realized by him and his loved ones that he was having psychotic episodes and was later diagnosed with a mental illness. During this time is when he lost the life that he knew and his family. Now he must begin to take medication and be housed in a in-home treatment facility with others battling the similar type of mental illnesses but Jack wants his old life back. Jack begins a journey of taking the challenge of independence and being a father again to his son who is now a pre-teen and explain to his son the challenges that he is facing on a daily basis in combating mental illness.
I loved this movie because we all know of someone (or it may be you) that is experiencing mental illness; its real and need to be treated. But one thing that we have to begin paying attention to is our own behavior in dealing with others with this illness including statements that we make. They are people just like us but they have an imbalance that causes their brains to fire off differently. I am more conscious about whenever I encounter someone especially someone that I don't know and they appear to be doing something that I believe to be abnormal I now just
say a prayer for them and thank God that He did not let this be a cross for me to bear.
