This affecting documentary follows four residents of New York's Fountain House, a psychological rehab facility struggling for survival against budget cuts and indifference. As the schizophrenic Zeinab, bipolar cross-dresser Kenneth (aka Frances), long-term asylum patient Tex, and wildly erratic Rastafarian Fitzroy battle their inner demons, the film offers a compassionate profile of this feared and misunderstood population. 90 min. Soundtrack: English.
