In the award-winning indie documentary “CRAZY,” Eric, diagnosed schizophrenic, faces a critical choice - whether to comply with traditional mental health treatment or follow his own path to wellness. Eric's doctors want to medicate him for his own protection...but after eight years of psych drugs, Eric decides to go off his meds because he is afraid of their side effects. His decision unleashes a powerful human drama of personal, medical and legal conflicts that take us right into the heart of how we think about and how we treat severe mental illness.
