SAMS MANIA

SYNOPSIS

Sam is bipolar and lives alone in his apartment. When he falls into a manic phase, he loses everything. Suddenly he finds himself on the street, the only question left unanswered is, what does his future look like?


STATEMENT:

Everyone knows someone who, even if only slightly, suffers from a mental illness. It is easy to forget or suppress how such an illness can feel. "Sams Mania" reminds viewers that health is a gift and not everyone is lucky enough to have been given it. It is very important to stand up for the sick and weaker people as a healthy person, only in this way can our society improve.

My vision with this film is to put healthy people in a situation they don't know and to inspire the viewers to be more open towards other people.
