Overview

Based on a true story.

Ken has schizophrenia, which has nearly destroyed his life and helped cause him to do great harm to others. Desi is Ken's older brother, who has witnessed much of Ken's troubled life.

Will Ken someday take his own life? Will he ever be at peace? Ken reveals to Desi that he has turned an important corner in his recovery from troubled memories, and that, perhaps, he can begin to find some happiness in life.

For Ken, his recovery has been a journey of finding his way out of a burning forest - a forest he himself has set on fire through his misguided actions over the years of his untreated mental illness.

It is a story like the lives of many who suffer in silence all around us; the story itself is powerful, and so the telling of it is simple and to the point.

There is no explicit content, however parental guidance is advised as there is a depiction of a suicide attempt, as well as other challenging themes.
