Meet David James Berati. He is the high school graduate with a bright future, the car, the girl…nothing can stop him! That is, until one night, when he tries to commit suicide. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, David avoids getting sent away by getting prescribed medicine and therapy until he heads off to college in the fall. However, he hates that both take away his creativity, and self-medicates with African Dream Root, a herb that helps give lucid dreams. The herb, however, does more than David bargained for, awakening his shades, the bad memories that led him to his suicide attempt in the first place. Can David face his inner demons, or will he be forced to put his life on an indefinite halt?
