Writer and director Tim Barrow hosts this screening of Riptide at Lyth Arts Centre, followed by a post-show Q&A.
Discharged from a psychiatric hospital, Jacob attempts to resume life in Edinburgh, control his schizophrenia and be a worthy member of society. He works collecting litter from streets and parks. He boxes. He takes medication. He writes everything down. His Dad barely wants to know him.
Frustrated by this existence and encouraged by his psychiatrist, Jacob sets off to the Highlands in search of fulfilment.
Riptide tells a contemporary tale of schizophrenia, hope and connection.
