Discharged from a psychiatric hospital, Jacob attempts to resume life in Edinburgh, control his schizophrenia and be a worthwhile member of society. He works collecting litter from streets and parks. He boxes. He takes medication. He writes everything down. His Dad barely wants to know him. Frustrated by this banal existence and encouraged by his psychiatrist, Jacob travels to the Highlands in search of fulfillment. By the sea he encounters the charismatic Eva, who claims to be the secret daughter of Ingmar Bergman. She's on a mission. Jacob and Eva embark upon adventures.
