“At its heart, a quiet elegy for a woman who needn't have died so soon, or so alone.”

John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

(Q&A with filmmakers after screening)

Linda Bishop, a well-educated New Hampshire mother, suffered from severe bipolar disorder with psychosis, was intermittently incarcerated and homeless, and was later committed for three years to a state psychiatric facility. Successfully fighting her sister’s attempts to be named her legal guardian, Linda refused treatment and medication and eventually procured an early, unconditional release, despite a lack of post-release planning. Upon her release, she wandered ten miles down the road from the hospital, broke into an abandoned farmhouse, and lived on rainwater and apples picked from a nearby orchard for the next four months… in one of the coldest winters on record. Unable to leave the house, she became its prisoner and remained there, eventually starving to death. Her body was discovered several months later — and with it, a poignant, beautiful, funny, and spiritual diary in which Linda documented her journey.
