Daytime Tiger

"An up-close encounter with an extremely intelligent man in the grip of bipolar disorder. Its also a harrowing portrait of marriage vows tested to the extreme. Morrissey was diagnosed with manic depression in 1999 but long rejected available medication. Having failed to find a publisher for his written account, he invited the filmmaker into his house to record his battle to tame the tiger through willpower. Botes gives full reign to his subjects convictions, clearly staggered by the phenomenally rapid idea association taking place when the genius is on a manic talking jag."
