The Mess

Directed by Dorothy Allen-Pickard
Writer / Performer: Ellice Stevens
Editor: Jennifer Tividad

As Ellice gets low, her room gets messy - she never sees it coming, but it always happens. There seems to be no way to break out of the endless highs or lows that make up bipolar, or even to pick up her clothes up off the floor.
