Lost Track

By Wendy Prosise and KelsyAnne Schoenhaar

Directed by Sarah Luedtke and KelsyAnne Schoenhaar

The story is about Danny (Leah Steele), who discovers she has bipolar disorder as a young adult. The plot traverses five of Danny's bipolar episodes, with the help of filmed scenes that give context to the events that repeatedly land her in the hospital. Danny's vulnerability is palpable. Lost in a fugue state, she wanders into situations where she could get seriously hurt, and even when she is well, she fears that another episode might strike. Her vulnerability also colors her experiences in medical institutions, where diagnosis is often an educated guess and the side effects of medication another frightening unknown.
