Either Side of the Lotus
Insecurity, illiteracy, and insanity are the basic elements of Sid Tate's deranged temperament. Locked away in a mental institution for as long as he can remember, Sid is largely disconnected from the outside world. His closed-minded beliefs are shaped by a group of passionate doctors whose dedication to his wellbeing seems incomparable. In turn, Sid's life is rendered one of illusionary complacency.
When Darren, a mysterious counselor from the "Outside," enters Sid's life, things drastically begin to change. Empowered by Darren's wise words, Sid embarks on a hallucinatory journey for spiritual freedom.
