SynopsisMentally ill at the work place – something that is not talked
about, something that is still a societal taboo. Being mentally ill
symbolizes weakness in our achievement-oriented society. Many
employees hide their mental crises because they worry about
their jobs. This trend is on the increase: More and more
German employees take time off work due to mental illnesses.
Jana Kalms' film explores what it means to be mentally ill at the
work place. She accompanies four protagonists, who have to
find their way back into the work force after a mental illness.
