When Carla and Marco meet in a treatment facility, their chemistry is instant and intense, driving each other to new heights. They pursue their passion, which breaks outside the bounds of sanity and swings them from fantastical highs to tormented lows, until they ultimately must choose between sanity and love.

Executive produced by Spike Lee (Chi-raq) and written, directed, edited, scored, and partially lived by bipolar filmmaker Paul Dalio (Faith, Love and Whiskey), the movie opened to generally positive reviews in February, 2016. That didn’t translate into much action at the domestic box office for this limited release, ringing up less than $200,000.
