A short, semi-autobiographical film which captures the limbo of self-identity after a diagnosis of serious mental illness.
Don't Blame Jack follows the newly diagnosed, manic-depressive, Jack, as he battles with the thought of life without his beloved ‘mania’.
Can the dullness of ordinary life ever compare to the magic of mania? And is sanity and stability worth the sacrifice?
