A young woman tries to come to a mentally ill man’s aid, but can’t see his demons…


“After Bernard, a mentally ill vagrant, comes to the aid of compassionate university student Lourdes, she tries to repay him with a meal and a sympathetic ear. But Bernard’s vision is increasingly crowded with vicious demons.”

If you have someone in your life with a mental illness (points to self), it’ll do you good to watch this short drama.

Trigger warning: There’s a moment of sexual violence toward the end.

About Troythulu

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.

    • I’m just grateful that I’ve never had the same sort of issues as that poor man did. Sure, the drama was fiction, but those sorts of hallucinations happen to people, and must be absolutely terrifying to have, like literal waking nightmares.
