Schizophrenic Connections

Schizophrenic Connections

By Michael Hedrick

Rob Black is a college junior who, through a strange and debilitating series of events, has come to believe that he is a prophet. Rob is actually in the beginning stages of schizophrenia, a serious chronic illness that will, in time, begin to define who he is. In this account of his initial episode and descent into delusion, he will come face to face with what it means to, not only exist on the fringes of society, but to change the lives of others who exist there as well. Based on a true story.
