Within the ambiguous safety of a service station, a concerned father and his scared daughter take refuge. Rachel lives with bipolar disorder and the invisibility of her condition has become all too real for both herself and Mark. What happens when they realise that neither of them could save her life? In collaboration with Bipolar UK, ‘Just in Case’ explores the harsh reality of what it’s really like to live with bipolar disorder.
*Will play before the feature documentary, Long Live My Happy Head.
Impact // Filmmaker’s Statement
We made this film for two reasons. 1) to educate people on the nuances of bipolar disorder, and in doing so, help to eradicate the stigma and 2) in the hopes that it’ll bring comfort to someone watching, even if that’s just one person — to make them feel less alone.
