Synopsis

Michelle White - a wife, mother, and nurse is in the grips of an undiagnosed mental illness that ultimately destroyed her life.

Revealed through the lens of her husband Randy, we witness over a decade of shocking, raw home video that pulls us into the middle of Michelle’s bipolar disorder. We watch as the disease slowly transforms her from a loving mother and nurse into a destructive and violent stranger.

This film tells the story of a husband and wife, from beginning to end. It includes interviews with friends, family, and mental health experts to tackle social taboos including hypersexuality, infidelity, mania, depression, drugs, psychosis and more.

The mission of this film is to expose the ugly truth about mental illness and how it destroys people so we can break the cycle.
