Six years ago, I received a life-altering diagnosis: bipolar disorder type II. Little did I know that this pivotal moment would set me on a path of self-discovery, resilience, and, ultimately, the creation of a documentary that unveils the reality of living with this challenging condition.

This documentary was created by my long-time friend Lera Zavyalova. With a heartfelt determination, I am compelled to share the story of my recovery journey, as I fervently believe it holds the power to ignite hope within others who may be facing similar struggles with this condition.

Recognising the utmost importance of keeping an ongoing dialogue surrounding mental illness open, we have created this film to extend support not only to individuals living with this diagnosis but also to their cherished loved ones and friends, who serve as unwavering allies on this shared journey.
