    Mathieu, a television director, has a revelation, leaves his family and goes to California. A former rock drummer, Louis, now talks to God and receives "cheques" from Stephen King's publisher in the mail. A young photographer decides to stop taking her meds... All have struggled with bipolar disorder, a still mysterious mental illness. Told partly in the first person, Tenir tête relates personal stories with breathtaking intimacy, full of heartbreaking testimonials. The film visually depicts the excesses of the manic phase, plunging to the heart of the matter in explosive and highly dynamic fashion.
