    • Synopsis
    • Manic chronicles filmmaker Kalina Bertin’s struggle to make sense of the mental illness wreaking havoc over her family’s household. Convinced that her father holds a key piece of the puzzle, she sets out to find the truth about him, and discovers a man known alternately as a cult leader, a scam artist, a prophet, and father of fifteen. Manic invites the viewer on a compelling and intimate journey through time and through the mind, where past and present echo back to one another, collide, and begin to trace a map of the legacy of mental illness in her family.
