This visceral, experiential sequence gives a distorted view of the world, suggestive of both the symptoms of mental disorders and the side effects of the drugs prescribed to treat them. Referencing one of the key elements of the drama's conspiracy, this approach focusses on people and the common experience of suffering from mental illness, and ultimately the choices that they face - treatment options and whether the prescription of medication is necessary.
