Love Out of Mind takes place in Brooklyn, NYC, and follows the story of a young man with bipolar disorder who struggles to enter into a relationship but is afraid of getting hurt. The story is about the vulnerability of falling in love in the cut-throat dating world of NYC, especially when one hasn’t yet found solid financial grounds in a crippled economy. Finding love and a steady career is really difficult when you feel directionless and broke, by it’s also an exciting time of change and opportunity. Love Out of Mind portrays the euphoria and torture of young love and first jobs.
