After a routine yellow fever vaccine required for an assignment in Africa, award-winning BBC foreign correspondent Malcolm Brabant descends into madness. Following a near fatal fever, subsequent hallucinations convince him he is the new Messiah. The psychosis lasts for six weeks, but Brabant suffers several relapses, including the staunch conviction that the Second Coming must be broadcast on TV. With rare footage shot by Brabant and his wife, this doc is both a paean to love and family, as well as a unique window onto mental illness.
