A filmmaker, a university student, an entrepreneur and a radio jockey. Women, who feel hungry, eat, grow fat and feel anxious about it. A film about not being perfect.

A journey to move beyond disorders and discover the real women battling the fantasies around and within them.

Schizophrenia. It may be one word, but conjures up multiple connotations - Mad. Incurable. Violent. Suicidal. Chemical imbalances. Crazy. A lifelong condition. Inevitable dependency on Medicines. Dark. Terrible. The Film takes us through the story of Reshma Valliappan, a 30-year old Indian woman, and charts out her journey of eventual triumph over her condition. It takes a controversial and contrarian view towards recovery from Schizophrenia, proposing that the only treatment method that can work in the condition is one where the so-called ‘patient’ is encouraged and empowered to become an equal partner in the process of healing.
