In Marseilles, away from the spotlight, in his cave like home Eric Alcala paints restlessly his dreams and fears. Eric is a struggling talented painter and musician, in the midst of a breakup, he is realizing that he might be bipolar. The film weaves between his past and his present condition with insomnia, fibromyalgia and mental instability. Through his creativity, he externalises his pain, he calls it the “illness that heals” – but to what extent. A man striving to breakthrough on the art world, while attempting to realign his troubled mind, body and soul – the source of his creativity.
