Mental illness is the focus. Marcia Gay Harden is excellent, partly I suppose as she often portrays very level headed women in control. The stigma of mental illness makes it difficult to cope with, but awareness and understanding will help steer us int the right direction.

How one family is affected by, and copes with, a mental illness. Despite the subject, it is very entertaining and artistic. I think it is a must-see!
