A mother living with bipolar affective disorder is working through trauma, illness and healing in a psychiatric hospital. Alberta is recovering with her psychiatrist’s help, and in the process, trying to learn how to be a parent with illness for her children. Through the course of a manic episode, Alberta is struck by visions and insights into her past and future. Can her altered state be the very thing that guides her back to her children? Chronicling her stay at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, this gritty yet magical play shines a light on the process of coming to terms with one’s own mental health.
