    • Synopsis
    • A sailing ship cuts through the Arctic Ocean while the narrator reads stories from people who have experienced psychotic experiences. In the first part of the journey one sees awe-inspiring, dazzling ice landscapes and one hears the description of the
      revelations associated with the paranoid and manic phases. The second part collapses us in the abyss, in the heart of the ice structure. We hear reports of the depressed phase. The storm is rising, the ship's rigging is running wild and we are entering the mental chaos of psychotic people. The third part runs on a calm sea, in one realistic landscape. We listen to solutions, transformations that psychotics try to live with their disorder.
