Plot Synopsis

Five fictional short films explore the impact of mental illness on people's lives, using Lucy as the character to tie the interconnected story arcs together. The five stories are: LUCY (directed by Bryce Dallas Howard), which tells the story of a law student who finds herself amidst the horror of schizophrenia, landing her in an institution where, through the support of a new friend, meds and her psychotherapist, she begins her path to not only healing, but a promising future; GRACE (directed by Sharon Maguire) exploring bipolar disorder through the experience of a teenage daughter whose mother grapples with the condition; ALLISON (directed by Laura Dern), revealing what happens when Lucy returns home from inpatient treatment, ruining her sister Allison's unveiling of her new boyfriend to their parents; EDDIE (directed by Bonnie Hunt), delving into into the world of depression as seen through the eyes of a comedian's wife, as she grapples with understanding how her husband Eddie, who is so loved, can be so withdrawn and overcome with sadness; and MAGGIE (directed by Ashley Judd), chronicling a female veteran who returns home from war to her son and father, only to have her life shattered by the onset of posttraumatic stress disorder, through which her lawyer, Lucy, helps. Lifetime aired all five shorts consecutively as a two-hour Lifetime Original Movie on a single night.
