Jessica, a highly self-motivated yet confused suburban young woman, is trying hard to keep up with the rat race of Mumbai Life. Like many of her generation, she has jumped from pure science to management in the hope of suitable livelihood opportunities. In the garb of a management project, she begins a journey which explores everyday Mumbai life and accidentally moves towards mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, attempting to unravel the fine line between the sane and the insane. She keeps revisiting, in vain, topics like the role of childhood experiences, environmental stimuli, adolescent peer pressure,the increasing stress among individuals living in a tech-savvy world, and so on. It becomes an unending tryst to arrive at some conclusion about what contributes to converting a normal individual to an individual without an inch of sanity. Shadow of Schizophrenia is a witty, straight-forward,critical-yet-contemporary take on the present-day Mumbai life. It at once touches the heart, enlightens the senses and helps heal hidden wounds, while offering a fascinating new perspective to helping us manage ourselves and our relations.
